Through its Wind Power program, Emuge offers a lineup of tools that are optimized specifically for the production of wind turbine components. For the production of internal and external threads, the program provides taps ranging to 4 ½" (114 mm), roll form taps ranging to 2" (51 mm) and thread mills ranging to 4" (102 mm). These tools are designed for virtually all thread sizes—with a special focus on large and deep threading—and virtually every material used in the manufacture of wind turbines. Also included in the line are quality tap and workpiece holders, available from stock or custom engineered for wind turbine applications. Gaging tools are also available for quick and reliable process control, the company says.
The program also offers a range of both solid carbide and HSS milling cutters, milling tools with indexable inserts and other milling accessories. The program includes end mills, slot drills, die-sinking cutters, shell end mills and gear cutters, in addition to complex profile milling tools.
