The Shur-Thread series of solid carbide thread mills is now available with an internal coolant supply that is designed to eliminate waste and improve chip evacuation.
The series is said to combine cutting-edge design elements with state-of-the-art grinding techniques for enhanced performance, versatility, reliability and ease of use. Featuring premium micro-grain carbide and TiCN coating for long tool life, the thread mills are engineered with multiple spiral flutes to eliminate chatter. Also, a large cutter diameter with high profile correction ensures true-to-gage threads and an extended milling portion allows for up to 2×D length of cut. To further enhance performance, an enlarged flute space provides efficient chip evacuation and an end-mill-type shank with clamping flat allows for secure tool holding, the company says.
The cutters produce threads for applications 1″ and less in a range of soft and pre-hardened steels to 58 Rc, stainless steels, aluminum, cast iron, titanium, Inconel and difficult-to-machine exotics.
