Walter’s T2711/T2712 thread milling system combines the advantages of thread milling with those of thread tapping. The system’s multiple thread sections can be machined simultaneously with high cutting parameters, enabling machining times comparable to those of thread tapping and forming.

In addition to machining, users also benefit from the high process reliability of the thread milling process and the cost benefits of an indexable insert tool. The tool is ideal for machining larger threads with diameters of 1” (24 mm) and above.

The thread milling system is a universal indexable thread mill for thread depths up to 2.5 DN and a pitch range of 8-18 TPI for UNC and UNF thread styles (1.5-6 mm for M and MF threads). The mill is suitable for ISO P, M, K, S and H. Materials up to 55 RC can be machined.
