Scientific Cutting Tools offers a complete line of full Acme and stub Acme single-profile thread mills with thread sizes ranging to 1 ¼" – 5".
Manufactured from solid carbide for maximum tool rigidity, the tools’ single-profile design provides a controllable pitch diameter and cut depth, the company says. Tools will cut both right- and left-hand threads at low horsepower requirements compared to tapping.
Micro-grain carbide, uncoated and TiAlN-coated, long-reach tools are available from stock for unfavorable length to diameter ratios. While the Acme thread mills are designed for cutting internal threads, optional external threading tools are available.
Can Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
