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.

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
