WIDIA is known for its excellence in innovation
You might think that you have seen other 16-edged face mills before, but this one is from WIDIA, known for its robust tool performance and tool life. A company that has consistently followed the philosophy of “Be the Best” for over 90 years.

What makes the WIDIA M1600 so special?

All combined the WIDIA M1600 gives you a longer tool life at a lower cost per edge.
