WXM 455

The WXM 455 is the top choice for machining with the most heavily interrupted cuts. For these applications, the cutting material’s toughness and resistance to abrasion is extremely important. This grade offers a high degree of toughness and, thanks to its optimized wear resistance, it can be implemented for machining with cutting speeds up to vc = 220 m/min with heavily interrupted cuts.
