Emuge Corp. is now offering an expanded line of solid carbide thread mills in their popular THREADS-ALL Program, to include new 3XD sizes designed for maximum reach. A total of 17 new sizes have been added, from miniature to standard size tools, providing maximum versatility in a wide range of thread milling applications.
The 3XD THREADS-ALL tools, as well as the 2XD offering, enable easy machining of a variety of difficult-to-cut materials such as stainless, titanium and inconel, most often used in the demanding industries of aerospace, defense and medical. Both 2XD and 3XD THREADS-ALL tools provide a single tool solution for through and blind holes and offer full bottom threading to within one pitch. With THREADS-ALL, pitch diameter can be easily controlled. In addition, STI threads can be readily produced with THREADS-ALL, ideal for aerospace threading applications.
Emuge’s all new ZGF-I 3XD Thread Mills require only eight stock standard tool sizes, #10,1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16,1/2, 5/8, 3/4, that allow for over 100 commonly produced screw thread designations. The ZGF-I 3XD line also includes Miniature size thread mills, available in four sizes ranging from 2 to 8.
Emuge’s new thread mill range produces excellent thread finish and gaging to meet today’s most demanding quality standards, while helping manufacturers reduce costs and improve delivery.
“Emuge understands the challenges of today’s threading applications,” said Emuge Corp. Product Director, Mr. Mark Hatch. “The new 3XD sizes in the THREADS-ALL program will give manufacturers additional versatility, and enable them to minimize tool inventories and help increase profitability.”
