The Tübingen-based premium-tool manufacturer is now expanding its thread milling cutter range. Three new thread milling cutter inserts with smaller corner radii enhance the versatility of the existing tool bodies; two new bodies now allow M56 and M64 coarse-pitch threads to be cut. These new additions transform the thread milling cutter family from one that was focused primarily on productivity to a family that can now be used universally.
In response to strong demand for reliable machining solutions in the aerospace industry, cutting tool and tooling system specialist Sandvik Coromant has launched new tapping and thread milling tools for ISO S materials (titanium and nickel-based alloys). The products have been purpose-designed to deliver excellent process security on high-value components, such as engine casings, thus providing reductions in scrap rates and machine downtime.
