VSM17 platform adds versatility to 90° shoulder milling

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

The Victory Shoulder Mill (VSM) 17 platform from WIDIA is claimed to be a robust and versatile tool used for shoulder milling, profiling, face milling, slotting, ramping, helical interpolation, and circular interpolation, all while achieving true 90° shoulders.

Designed for low horsepower draw and free machining, the VSM17 delivers reduced horsepower at the machine and higher speed and feed rates that mean more parts per shift.

The VSM17 cutter body features a chip gash design as well as a hardened-steel construction and hardened pocket seats which provide resistance to deformation. VSM17 is said to offer ramping capability up to 8.8° and a maximum 16.45mm depth of cut. VSM17 is available in shell mills, screw on cutters, cylindrical shank and Weldon shank end mills with internal air and coolant capability.

Inserts for the VSM17 have strong cutting edges, multiple corner radii, and positive rake faces that provide a true 90°wall while providing wall and floor surface finish.
