The Walter Prototyp Supreme TC610 and TC611 solid carbide thread mills, high performance tools deliver increases in thread quality, milling productivity and process reliability, while boosting tool life, the company says. The TC610 with 1.5xD and the TC611 with 2xD both are designed to offer a geometry that reduces vibration, produces superior surface finishes, as well as a through-coolant design that optimizes chip removal and helps prevent fractures, the company says.

The thread mills are offered in grades WB10RD and WJ30RC. According to Walter, WB10RD has shown tool life improvements of 40 percent compared with other similar thread mills in lab tests. It features TiALN coating with a finishing layer of ZrN. The ZrN layer has a low affinity for steel, providing low temperatures in the cutting zone.

The WJ30RC grade, with TiALN coating, delivers exceptional process reliability along with improved tool life, the company says. It can be run with or without coolant, broadening its areas of application.

The Walter Prototyp Supreme TC610/611 thread mills are suitable for use with ISO material groups P, M, K, N, S, and O, and can be obtained through the Walter GPS system.
