The Pramet T8010 Resists Wear and Tear
The Pramet T8010 cutting grade is especially useful for continuous precision threading of steels, stainless steel, cast iron and super alloys.
Dormer Pramet has launched a wear-resistant grade for threading. The Pramet T8010 is ideal for continuous precision threading of steels, stainless steel, cast iron and super alloys. It extends the company’s assortment in this application area and supports the universal grade T8030.
The tool features plastic deformation resistance, which provides a stable cutting-edge, prolonging durability. The tool is said to enable higher cutting speeds, resulting in higher productivity. A gold finish on the insert enables a simple wear indicator, while a hard substrate and PVD coating has been optimized to alleviate interior residual stress to improve tool life, the company says.
Having strategies in place for managing chips is an important part of protecting the production process, from tool life to product quality.
The rapidly increasing demand for high-value threaded parts with exceptionally high length-to-diameter ratios has created a lot of interest in thread whirling technology among American shops and manufacturers.
Production of micro threads can be challenging, but using the most suitable tools for a given application can simplify the task.
