The new VSM490 double-sided shoulder milling platform from WIDIA is a powerful advantage for achieving true 90º shoulders and floors with superior surface finish.

Numerous precision parts in transportation, mold making, general engineering, and more require true 90º shoulders and floors with superior surface finish.

Economic and competitive pressures require manufacturers of all parts to maximize metal removal and tool life. The new VSM490 double-sided shoulder milling platform from WIDIA is a powerful advantage for achieving all this and more.

Designed for low horsepower draw and free machining, VSM490 delivers an effective one-two punch of reduced horsepower at the machine and higher speed and feed rates that get jobs done faster and/or with an improved surface quality.

With four cutting edges and multiple corner nose radii available, the robust VSM490-15 inserts provide added stability and reliability in addition to delivering true 90º shoulders and floors.

Two insert geometries are available: MM (universal), making it the first choice for a range of work materials; and ML (light) with sharper cutting edges resulting in lower cutting forces for mild steels and stainless.

VSM490 cutter bodies made with tight tolerances to ensure minimum run-out 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.

VSM490 Starter Kits in both metric and inch, including cutter bodies, end mills, and WIDIA Victory grade inserts covering a variety of applications are available by contacting your WIDIA distributor.
