March 2021




When others thought it was impossible, the WIDIA HANITA team set out to make the next generation of high performance endmills.  The HANITA VARIMILL XTREME is the most capable endmill in the market today with stated slotting passes at 1.25XD.  But in testing we have seen this tool reliably take 2XD slotting passes in high alloy steel with ease!  If maximum depth of cut is not your goal then lets talk about tool life.  Due to the advanced geometry of this tool it cuts with much less heat than a standard endmill.  Meaning that tool life can increase significantly in your production applications even at higher speeds and feeds!  See the amazing capabilities of the VARIMILL XTREME endmills here.




February 2021




The HANITA VARIMILL has been the market leader for 4 flute endmills since its introduction over 20 years ago.  Since that time, HANITA has made small improvements to keep this product on the leading edge of performance.  Today the HANITA VARIMILL is still leading its competitors with extreme reliability and high performance combined with competitive pricing.  This is the endmill that you can run your entire shop on.  See the performance in this updated video below
