Versatility for 90 Degree Shoulder Milling

The versatile and robust VSM17 platform from WIDIA provides true 90° walls and excellent stepless finishes.

The WIDIA Victory Shoulder Mill (VSM) 17 platform is designed to be a robust and versatile job-shop cutter that can be used for shoulder milling, profiling, face milling, slotting, ramping, helical interpolation and circular interpolation, all while achieving true 90° shoulders.

Engineered for low horsepower draw and free machining, the VSM17 delivers reduced horsepower at the machine and higher speed and feedrates to produce more parts per shift. "For a wide range of work materials, the entire VSM17 platform is optimized to provide higher productivity for job shops," said Adarsh Sowcar, Global Product Manager, Indexable Milling.

"VSM17 cutter bodies have an integral chip gash design for excellent chip evacuation along with hardened-steel construction and hardened pocket seats that provide high resistance to deformation," said a spokesperson. VSM17 offers aggressive ramping capability up to 8.8° and a maximum 0.642" (16.45 mm) 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.

VSM17 inserts are designed with strong cutting edges, multiple corner radii, and positive rake faces that provide a true 90° wall while providing excellent wall and floor surface finish. VSM17 starter kits are available now through local authorized WIDIA distributors. These kits feature a cutter body and ten inserts.
