Vargus USA’s TMDR solid carbide thread milling tool enables drilling, thread milling and chamfering in one tooling operation. The tool does not require pre-drilled holes and can work immediately on the surface of the component, which improves cycle time and productivity. It also works on components with pre-drilled holes including blind holes, through holes and semi-finished holes. 

The tool suits full profile applications, with or without coolant, with a range of materials such as steel, stainless steel, cast iron and nonferrous metals.

The tool features thread lengths measuring 2×D and 2.5×D. Thread standards are American UN, from no. 4-40 up to ¾"10, and ISO Metric from M3×0.5 up to M23×2.5. The tool is available in the general-purpose VTS grade, coated with TiCN for high wear resistance. It is integrated into Vargus Genius software for tool selection and cutting data.
