Widia WCE Solid End Milling Platform Suits Steel, Stainless Steel, and Cast-Iron Applications

Widia has launched the WCE solid end milling platform. The initial release is WCE4, a four-flute geometry with a new grade (WU20PE).

Two key features of the tool are its asymmetrical index and variable helix. The combination of the two reduce vibrations and enable heavy cuts, while the new grade enables versatility on steel, stainless steel, and cast-iron applications, the company states.

The WCE platform includes four-flute, square-end, and ball-nose end mills with both straight and Weldon shanks, available in both metric and inch dimensions. The WCE5 five-flute geometry will be released later in 2022.
