Walter Tools has introduced its Thrill∙tec TC645 Supreme thread milling cutter, which combines the machining steps of core-hole drilling, chamfering, and threading in a single tool.
The tool creates the core hole and threads using helical interpolation. The left-hand cutting tool can also be used for chamfering, which should take place before thread milling at the thread entry. The tool’s face, or front milling geometry, enables core-hole drilling, chamfering, milling, and threading.
The thread mill is made of the high-performance coated WB10TJ grade to enable universal machining of steel, stainless steel, cast iron, nonferrous metal, and super alloys and titanium alloys.
