Walter AG has expanded its range of threading tools with the release of the TC410 Advance HSS-E thread former with TiN coating and a new geometry, which can be used universally for blind and through-hole threads (metric, metric fine, UNC/UNF and G), all formable materials from the ISO material groups P, M and N as well as for ISO K and S as a secondary application.
The tool’s new geometry and special post-treatment help reduce the cutting time in the material—hence reducing friction and, consequently, the amount of heat generated, which in turn reduces wear and ultimately increases the edge life of the tool. Likewise, the post-treated, extremely smooth surface of the tool reduces the torque and increases the tool life as a result.
Walter’s TC410 Advance is available in two variants: without lubrication grooves or with lubrication grooves for deeper threads up to 3.5 × DN. The tool is suitable for users with medium to large batch sizes in particular, because it can produce more threads with the same tool.
