Inserts, Heads, Solid Carbide Endmills
Solid Carbide Endmills

SolidThread

  • Pitch 0.25 mm – 3.5 mm, Tool diameter 0.72mm
  • Machining small diameter threads, such as M1x0.25 and 0-80UNF
Heads

TungMeister Heads for threading (VMT / VTR)

  • Pitch 0.5 mm – 4.5 mm, Tool diameter 10 mm
  • Head-changeable Thread-milling tools for less down-time than a solid tapping tool
Inserts

Inserts for Indexable Thread Milling

  • Pitch 1.5 mm – 6.0 mm, Tool diameter 17 mm
  • Able to incorporate multiple inserts for various threading diameters and pitches
Grades

AH725

  • Good balance between wear and chipping resistance
  • Suitable for machining steel and stainless steel under general cutting conditions

GH330

  • High resistance to wear and fracture
  • Suitable for continuous to medium interrupted cutting

Cutter bodies

  • When threading a blind hole, use a right hand cutter in right-hand rotation. Cut up from the bottom to prevent chip recutting.
  • When machining internal threads from the mouth, use the left-hand cutter in left-hand rotation.
