New thread former from Walter Tools

Posted on 07 Jun 2020 and read 922 times
New thread former from Walter ToolsWith the introduction of its TC410 Advance HSS-E thread former, the Bromsgrove-based tooling expert Walter GB Ltd (www.walter-tools.com) can now offer customers thread-generating tooling that covers more than 200 thread dimensions and tolerances.

With their TiN coating, the company’s new HSS-E tools can be used to form blind and through-hole threads (metric, metric fine, UNC/UNF and G) in all materials in the ISO groups P, M and N, as well as ISO K and S,

In addition to the general advantage of eliminating ‘tool wedging’ due to trapped chips (thereby ensuring high process reliability), the TC410 Advance also offers reduced wear and therefore extended tool life — thanks to its geometry and post-treatment process.

Its ‘innovative profile’ reduces cutting time, which in turn minimises friction and the amount of heat generated. Tool life is also extended by the tool’s extremely smooth surface, which reduces torque requirements and allows more threads to be produced with the same tool.

Walter GB offers the TC410 Advance in two variants: one without lubrication grooves; and one with grooves for deeper threads up to 3.5x diameter.
