Widia M1600 face mill Aug 2021Click image to enlarge

Widia has released its new M1600 face mill for roughing to semifinishing operations in steel, stainless steel, cast iron and nodular iron materials.

With 16 cutting edges and a smart insert design, the M1600 performs in various machining conditions including low-power machines, unstable, non-rigid setups, long overhangs, weak machines or weak fixture conditions.

The 16-edge precision-ground insert features a positive geometry, enabling low cutting forces and low power consumption, extending tool life and optimizing cost per edge. The M1600 has one universal insert geometry in three grades: WP35CM, WK15CM and WU20PM. The WP35CM grade targets all types of steels, while the WK15CM grade is designed for cast iron materials and performs best in dry applications but can also be used in wet conditions. The universal WU20PM grade can be used for the machining of steel, stainless steel and high-temperature alloys in both dry and wet applications.

The ‘smart’ insert design features a seating surface below the cutting edge for smooth chip flow and reduced cutting forces. The insert also has a curved cutting edge and is axially positive, which minimizes power consumption.
