EMUGE-FRANKEN USA (West Boylston, MA) announced the launch of a new line of multipurpose thread mills designed for threading a wide range of standard materials efficiently and economically.
MultiTHREAD Thread Mills enable shops to boost their production output and save on threadmaking costs, as fewer types of thread mills need to be stocked in the tool crib and the possibility of broken taps and scrapped parts are eliminated.
MultiTHREAD Thread Mills feature a proprietary TIN T21 coating developed by EMUGE, which reduces chip welding and improves chip evacuation.
MultiTHREAD Thread Mills also allow one tool to thread both through and blind holes and make right or left-hand threads.
Two types of sub-micro grain carbide thread mills are offered – full form or single plane.
Full form thread mills that machine threads in one timesaving cutting rotation, feature a rigid core diameter that reduces deflection. The single plane design enables one tool to produce multiple thread sizes and allows the pitch diameter to be controlled.
EMUGE MultiTHREAD Thread Mills are available in a broad range of types and sizes. Full form 2XD thread mills range from No.10 to 3/4ʺ sizes in solid tools, and 1/4ʺ to 1ʺ sizes in coolant-through tools.
Full form thread mills are also available in metric sizes. Single plane 2XD thread mills range from No. 0 to 3/4ʺ including STI sizes in inch, and 3XD single plane mills range from No. 2 to 3/4ʺ.
Single plane models are available in either solid or coolant-through on larger sizes. In total, over 80 SKUs of MultiTHREAD tools are stocked as standard.
