Walter GB’s T2711/T2712 indexable insert thread mill can achieve shorter cycle times than thread milling. According to the company, the T2711/T2712 competes with the productivity of taps on large threads.

Designed for use on all materials in the ISO material groups P, M, K, S and H up to 55 HRC, the tools can be used for thread depths of up to 2.5 × diameter and a pitch range of 1.5 mm to 6 mm or 18-4 TPI.

Users of the tools will also benefit from high levels of productivity at a lower cost per thread, the company says. In addition, tool life was 540 parts per cutting edge with Walter’s T2711 compared to 300 parts with a competitor tool.
