Thread mills for nickel alloys and exotic materials
08 May 2019
Emuge Corp. has introduced advanced Threads-all ZGF-S-Cut made of solid carbide. The thread mills feature multiple teeth, a helical flute form, and multi-layer TiAlN T46 coating. The thread mills are a solution when threading Inconel and other high-temperature alloys because the heat is carried away during chip evacuation and does not stay with the part.
ZGF-S-Cut have been designed to increase tool life, and produce precise threads in exotic materials including Inconel, nickel-based superalloys, Monel, titanium, and 420 stainless steel for aerospace applications such as engines, connecting rods, and landing gear, as well as in other components comprised of exotic materials.
