Plunge Milling Ingeuity From WNT

WNT’s latest solid carbide milling development, the Monstermill PCR UNI enables precise, process-secure, ramping/plunge milling at high angles or with extreme chip volumes during full slot milling, providing a new milling solution thanks to its innovative geometry, four flute design and patented centring tip. The design delivers powerful and extremely quiet milling across a range of materials including steel, stainless steels and cast iron.

Time for the next generation


Dormer has launched a new generation of solid carbide multi-application drills to deliver a greater level of performance and economy. ​​​​​Force X is the new family name given to the Dormer range of drills, which replaces the MPX assortment.

Milling from a different angle


Dormer Pramet introduced a versatile new line of tools and inserts to support economical shoulder milling applications in a wide variety of materials.

Helping you to the finish


​Dormer Pramet have launched several new inserts and a grade to support turning in specific materials. The new chip breakers – developed under our Pramet brand – are for finishing and medium to roughing operations in steel, cast iron, high temperature alloys and stainless steel.

Easy Selection Breaker System

In the increasingly competitive and complex world of metal cutting, a new system that first identifies the cutting mode, light medium or roughing L, M and R, then the ISO material specification, P,M,K and S was thought to be the best way for users to quickly identify which insert was most suitable for their application.…
