ACCUSHARP Thread mills are used to make threads on machining centers with helical interpolation capabilities. The advantages of thread milling over tapping are dependent on the customer’s requirements. Thread milling is ideal for short-run operations, especially in pricey products where thread finish is crucial. Thread milling can be used to machine difficult-to-machine materials such inconel, hard steels, and titanium as well as short-run tasks needing taper pipe threads.
The solid carbide HiPIMS coated thread mills from ACCUSHARP are helical fluted to cut easily like an end mill and the AlTin multi-layer coating provides substantially longer tool life and allows milling in harder materials.
