The Widia VariMill GP (general-purpose) solid carbide end-mill is said to be suitable for roughing, semi-finishing and finishing in materials that include aluminium, steels, stainless steels and cast irons. The key benefits to manufacturing companies include reduced inventory and tool management on machines.
Consisting of two- and four-flute versions in square-end, chamfered-edge, and ball-nose configurations, VariMill GP end mills prove their performance increases through advanced design features. A 30-degree helix angle and eccentric relief provides strong edges and stability for roughing, semi-finishing, and finishing with the same tool. A thick TiAlN coating contributes to extended tool life across steel, stainless steel, and cast iron workpieces and milling, ramping, or slotting operations.
VariMill GP mills are available in inch and metric sizes along with varying lengths and shank styles.
VariMill GP (General Purpose) is the latest in Widia’s “Vari” family of tools, which extends to VariDrill™ and VariTap™. The ‘Vari’ in VariMill stands for variability.
