Emuge Expands Solid Carbide Thread Mills
April 27, 2010—An expanded line of Solid Carbide Thread Mills was introduced to Emuge Corp.'s Threads-All program. The new thread mills require minimal tooling and adapt quickly to a range of threading requirements to machine with high thread quality and tool life. The thread mills require eight standard tool sizes, numbers 10-1/4-5/16-3/8-7/16-1/2-5/8-3/4, so it is possible to make over 100 commonly produced screw thread designations, including UNC-UNF-STI UNC-STI UNF-UNEF-UNS-UNJC-UNJF-M-MJ. The tools also provide total control over pitch diameter limits, including 2B, 3B, 3BG and all oversize variants. The Threads-All program is designed for difficult-to-cut materials, up to 58Rc-including stainless steels, titanium and Inconel-that are often used in demanding industries, such as aerospace, defense and medical. The Threads-All program also includes miniature tools in 10 sizes from 0 to STI 8. "Emuge recognizes the need to continually deliver new tooling solutions to help manufacturers cut costs, improve delivery times and produce world-class products," says Mark Hatch, thread milling manager at Emuge. "With the new Threads-All program, we offer manufacturers a high quality threading solution, which maximizes profitability and minimizes tool inventories."
