The Carmex AMT (aluminum mill-thread) cutter delivers high surface finish, good chip evacuation and is constructed of solid carbide to absorb cutting forces in high-speed aluminum machining. Available in a cylindrical shank or Weldon shank, the cutter is designed to minimize the tendency of aluminum to stick to the cutting tool edges. The uncoated smooth cutting edge, equipped with coolant hole pass-through, generates high thread surface and is especially useful for both right- and left-hand internal threads.

The AMT tool is especially useful for applications in the aerospace and automotive industries and others where there is demand for both high speed and high precision in the machining of aluminum. The tool can also be used in applications involving cast iron and stainless steels. It is available in a variety of sizes and thread configurations.

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
