Emuge’s ZGF-S-Cut Thread Mills Produces Threads in Exotic Materials
Emuge’s Threads-all ZGF-S-Cut Solid Carbide Thread Mills feature multiple teeth, a helical flute form and multi-layer TiAlN T46 coating.
Emuge’s Threads-All ZGF-S-Cut Solid Carbide thread mills
The thread mills have multiple teeth, the first acting as a rougher and the next two performing finishing. By dividing functions into three cutting edges, speeds and feeds can be increased and threads can be produced in a single pass, the company says. A 10-degree, left-hand helical flute form and chamfer geometry combine to optimize chip evacuation in the forward direction and add strength to the cutting teeth for better tool life and process security. The tools also have multiple flutes for increased tool strength.
The tools are available in lengths of
The Emuge Threads-all ZGF program of sub-micro grain carbide thread mills encompasses solutions to produce internal threads from No. 0-80 (M1) to 3/4-16. for industries using materials such as stainless steel, titanium and Inconel. Coolant-fed options are available starting at the 5/16" diameter size. Available in 2×D and 3×D lengths in both miniature and standard thread sizes, the Threads-all family of thread mills offer solutions for difficult applications with full bottoming threading within 1 pitch. Threads-all tools provide control over pitch diameter limits including 2B, 3B, 3BG and all oversize variants. Single plane and multiple plane tools are available.
This complex milling operation is performed effectively on a machine that does turning.
Once seen as a specialty machine tool, the CNC Swiss-type is increasingly being used in shops that are full of more conventional CNC machines. For the newcomer to Swiss-type machining, here is what the learning curve is like.
Combining a rotating tool with rotating work produces a machining operation that is distinct from standard turning or milling.
