Widia’s Victory VSM11 platform includes cutter bodies and inserts designed for low-horsepower draw and free machining. According to the company, the cutting platform enables higher speed and feed rates for faster production. Intended for use by job shops, the platform is designed to improve productivity and extend tool life.

The VSM11 cutter bodies have an integral chip gash design to promote chip evacuation. A hardened-steel construction and hardened pocket seats improve resistance to deformation. The cutters are available in shell, screw-on, cylindrical shank and Weldon shank models with internal air and coolant capability.

The 11-mm insert features a positive rake face that provides a true 90-degree wall while concurrently reducing cutting forces and providing stepless surface finishes. Six Widia Victory grades and five geometries are available for covering various material types and machining tasks. A starter kit consisting of four cutter bodies and Widia Victory grade WP40PM covering roughing to finishing is available through Widia distributors.
