Tungaloy is expanding its TetraMini-Cut, an indexable thread turning tool series with a four-edged insert, to include full profile threading inserts for machining external threads in ISO metric thread standards.

The TetraMini-Cut insert comes in a compact profile with four cutting edges. Its insert clamping ensures high repeatability, accuracy and tool life predictability, the company says. The full profile threading insert can be mounted on the existing standard TetraMini-Cut toolholder for 60° V-profile or grooving inserts. Since the insert cuts a complete thread profile including the crest, no deburring of the thread profile is need. In addition, the optimized tool design provides minimal interference when turning toward the tailstock of the lathe.

Inserts are offered in two grades: SH725 allows free cutting of fine pitch threads in small-diameter bores and AH725 for universal threading applications on Swiss-type as well as general lathes.

    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.
