The TC410 Advance HSS-E thread former.
Walter USA’s TC410 Advance HSS-E thread former is a versatile TiN coated threading tool for small and medium batch sizes. It can be used universally for blind and through-hole threads in most materials, having a primary application in ISO material groups P, M and N and ISO K and S as a secondary application.
The Advance is available in two variants: with lubrication grooves for applications that need help getting coolant to the area where the forming is happening, or without lubrication grooves for when the coolant is already pooled in the hole. Deeper threads up to 3.5 × DN can be produced in certain materials with these tools. Also offered are a variety of configurations covering thread styles, thread tolerances and shank standards, including an option for LH threads.
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.
An ongoing effort towards more efficient operations drove this shop to take a closer look at indirect material usage, subsequently leading to implementation of a new system for tracking toolroom inventory.
Having strategies in place for managing chips is an important part of protecting the production process, from tool life to product quality.
