Carmex has introduced two new lines of multi-functional thread mills specifically for machining hardened materials up to 62 HRc.
Engineered to meet threading challenges from ISO M1.4 x 0.3 and 0-80UN, HARDCUT thread mills deliver high performance in hardened steels, high-temperature alloys, Titanium alloys and ultra-hard formulations such as Hastelloy, Inconel, and nickel base alloys.
Thanks to their short profile, they are capable of working at high cutting speeds, thereby shortening cycle times.
The increased cutting diameter delivers better rigidity and stability, and the advanced PVD triple coating results in high wear and heat resistance and longer tool life.
The use of hard and super-hard materials in industries such as moldmaking, aviation, energy and medical implants and tools requires a new generation of thread mills capable of standing up to hard materials while, at the same time, delivering increased productivity through better performance and longer life.
The Carmex HARDCUT line meets those demands through an extensive size range that delivers the Carmex guarantee of “X-TREME results.”
Two new things for your this month from Carmex! The NEW FMT Thread mill and the NEW Double and Triple Start Tapered Thread Mills. Read below for the details!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Carmex Precision Tools
Richfield, WI., - Constructed of rugged MT8 carbide with Carmex’s exclusive BLU coating, the new FMT thread mill delivers accurate thread geometry and fine surface quality in short cycle times. Unlike conventional taps, the FMT can thread up to the bottom of a blind-hole while delivering the high reliability necessary for complex parts.
FMT’s high-speed performance results from the increased number of flutes, which require an extremely heavy-duty carbide grade, as well as advanced coating technology in order to ensure a high degree of performance and
longer tool life.
In a recent test, an FMT thread mill with a 6-flute cutter and internal coolant created a 10mm internal right-hand thread to the bottom of a blind hole in SAE 4340 steel. The cycle time was 1.5 seconds and the tool life was 2,170 threads. In that test, and in any number of other applications, the FMT is emerging as the suitable thread mill for high-production/high-demand applications.
