Carmex Precision Tools LLC’s modular line (ML) is designed for internal threading and grooving applications. It uses a single boring bar that can be fitted with multiple adapters offering accuracy, adjustment, and full repeatability, the company says. 

Coated with abrasive-resistant nickel, the ML adapters can be used with all Carmex standard thread turning inserts sizes 16, 22, and 27 mm. According to the company, the 16-mm grooving inserts fit the MLR-L 16-32 and MLR-L 16-40 adapters. 

The combination of high quality and flexibility in the modular line provides high performance in internal machining, deep thread generation, and grooving and saves appreciable costs by reducing tool inventories, the company says. The boring bars and adapters are also designed for use with internal high-pressure as well as conventional coolant.
