The new Top Cut 4 indexable drilling platform from WIDIA is targeted to end-users who need one drill for a variety of drilling applications.

The new Top Cut 4 features expanded capabilities and improved performance.

Top Cut 4’s breadth of application capabilities include through- and cross-holes, inclined entry and exit opportunity, 45º corner, half-cylindrical, concave, and chain drilling.

And four true cutting edges combined with WIDIA-grade technology results in notably higher speeds and feeds, higher metal-removal rates, and extended tool life, all of which means lower cost per edge.

“Process stability is a significant challenge and the driver behind Top Cut 4 and its

development,” says WIDIA Product Manager Vivian Pavlov. “What process stability simply means is the ability to quickly select and successfully apply a tool even in an unfamiliar or unstable condition. Users need one drill that can be applied in a variety of drilling operations and workpiece materials. Top Cut 4 addresses this challenge with cutting 1600 Technology performance at higher speeds, which makes it the proven choice in lowest cost per edge.”

Top Cut 4 periphery and centre inserts each feature proprietary cutting profiles for

excellent centering capability and workpiece penetration. The inner and outer (center and periphery) inserts are clearly differentiated for no mixups, and are available in grades for high-speed applications, high toughness demands, and high metal-removal rates in general. Specific geometries are available with such features as reinforced cutting edges and a steep chipbreaker for steel, cast iron, and short-chipping materials, or an optimized chip groove for stainless steel, long-chipping steels, and where low power consumption is required.

Top Cut 4 is available through NOVO, WIDIA’s digital process knowledge application.
