New TungThread I.D. threading inserts for the aerospace and oil & gas industries

Iwaki, April 2018 – Tungaloy expands its TungThread series to include I.D. threading inserts for MJ metric thread used in aerospace applications and API round thread commonly found on tubing in the oil and gas sector.

The new I.D. threading insert for MJ aerospace metric thread features the AH8015 grade for excellent wear and chip-welding resistances, enabling reliable threading of difficult materials, such as stainless steel and heat-resistant superalloys.

A double-point threading insert line is added to the API round internal threading series in addition to standard single point inserts, promoting efficiency in aerospace threading applications.

No new additional holders are required for these new inserts; they all can be mounted on Tungaloy’s existing I.D. threading holders.
