Carmex Precision’s Slim MT inserts and toolholders feature multiple straight flutes that are designed for machining longer threads in small to large hole diameters.

The inserts are made of an advanced carbide and coating combination for extended too life. Most of the inserts are double-sided. Featuring what the company calls a unique clamping system, the toolholders are also nickel-coated for increased wear resistance. The longer inserts are said not only to make deep-hole threading easier, but also to deliver a better finish in a faster cycle time. The Slim MT holders and inserts are available in a variety of sizes and multiple international configurations.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.

  • Rigid Tapping--Sometimes You Need A Little Float

    One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
