Expanded Thread Milling Cutter Family Offers New Tool Bodies and Inserts

Walter T2711 (top) and T2712 thread milling cutters

Walter has expanded the range of its innovative T2711/T2712 thread milling cutter family for cutting large threads with two new tool bodies for the M56 and M64 threads and three new thread milling cutter inserts. Walter's multiple-row T2711/T2712 thread milling cutter family, designed to increase productivity for some applications by as much as 90%, can now be used for all dimensions in the coarse-pitch thread range. The T2711/T2712 is the first thread milling system to combine the advantages of thread milling with those of thread tapping. Multiple thread sections can be machined simultaneously with high cutting parameters, enabling machining times comparable to those of thread tapping and forming.

In addition to quick machining, users also benefit from the high degree of process reliability of thread milling and the cost benefits of an indexable insert tool. The new thread milling cutter inserts with smaller corner radii enhance the versatility of the existing tool bodies, and the two new tool bodies allow M56 and M64 coarse-pitch threads to be cut. UNC, UNF, M and MF thread sizes starting at 1" dia. (24 mm) can be machined with the existing T2711/T2712 tool bodies and inserts.

The new thread milling cutter inserts enable users to cut finer pitches. Because of these inserts, the multiple-row bodies can cut not just one or two pitches, but many when the row spacing is an integral multiple of the pitch. And with the new tool bodies, virtually any pitch between 6-18 TPI. (1.5 and 6 mm) can be cut. This means that users who are already working with the Walter T2711/T2712 thread milling cutters can now produce numerous pitches, instead of just one or two, with a single tool body. In addition, with just a few tools, users can cut not just multiple pitches, but also common and less common thread sizes.
