Seco Threading Grade Excels in Critical Parts and Materials
The TTP2050 grade's nano-laminate PVD coating is designed to increase tool life on inserts and produce high running parameters for increased threading productivity.
To prevent threading chips from ruining critical parts in the final phases of production, the advanced coating and tool geometry of the TTP2050 threading insert grade from Seco Tools combine to provide efficient, secure, stable performance, along with effective chip control, the company says.
The TTP2050 grade's nano-laminate PVD coating is designed to increase tool life on inserts and produce high running parameters for increased threading productivity, giving it the extreme wear resistance to machine cast irons, tool steels, stainless steels and other challenging steels. Made from alternating layers of titanium aluminum nitride (TiAlN) and titanium silicon nitride (TiSiN), this chemistry outperforms the general-purpose coatings often used on threading tools. At the same time, the grade offers the tool geometry to increase productivity in these challenging materials.
The threading grade is available in 44 profiles with geometry -A, in 11 mm and 16 mm (0.433" and 0.650") sizes. The grade comes in both internal and external threading for all standard, common thread profiles.
Here's a look at one of the oldest and most efficient methods of screw machine production for parts that are long and slender, with close-diameter tolerances and finishes, or parts that require truly spherical radii.
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.
