The new VSM11 platform from WIDIA offers specifically engineered and optimized to provide higher productivity for job shops. Designed for low horsepower draw and free machining, the VSM11 delivers an effective one-two punch of reduced horsepower at the machine and higher speed and feed rates that get jobs done faster.
VSM11 platform is a high-performance tool that can cover multiple functions such as shoulder milling, slotting, pocket milling, ramping and helical interpolation. All inserts are available in the latest WIDIA VictoryTM grades for a variety of workpiece materials.
VSM11 cutter bodies have an integral chip gash design for excellent chip evacuation along with hardened-steel construction and hardened pocket seats for improved resistance to deformation. They are available in shell, screw on, cylindrical shank, and Weldon shank models with internal air and coolant capability.
VSM11 11-mm insert has an optimized cutting edge and positive rake face that provides a true 90-degree wall while concurrently reducing cutting forces and providing excellent, stepless surface finishes. Six WIDIA VictoryTM grades and five geometries make up a well-rounded portfolio of first-choice recommendations covering multiple material types and machining tasks.
There are many things for job shops to like about VSM1. One offering can accomplish 90-degree shoulder milling, full slotting, 3D pocket milling, circular contour milling ID and OD, helical interpolation and ramping into full material. Add to that reduced cutting forces and improved free-cutting action and the result is phenomenal hours of improved tool life. VSM11 are high-performance tools that do more of what job shops need done.
A VSM11 Starter Kit of four cutter bodies and WIDIA Victory grade WP40PM covering roughing to finishing, is available by contacting your WIDIA distributor.
