Tungaloy 11 ER external threading inserts

Tungaloy expands its TungThread line of indexable threading tools to include 11 ER external threading inserts as well as 8×8-mm and 10×10-mm square shank holders to accommodate the new inserts.

These 11 ER threading inserts and two square shank holders are specifically designed with users of Swiss-type automatic lathes in mind. The 11 ER insert is smaller than conventional 16 ER inserts, and the insert holders are designed to ensure a minimum interference when machined toward the subspindle, which is an issue with a 16 ER insert holder.

This expansion will enhance the TungThread series to meet the needs of various threading applications on Swiss-type automatic lathes and other small-parts manufacturing equipment.
