Tungaloy Corporation has introduced a new addition of the M-class threading inserts with chipbreaker to the popular TungThread line.
The new additions include external ISO-metric threads with pitches 3.5 and 4.0mm, external/internal round DIN405, and external/internal partial V-profile 60° threads with pitches from 3.5 through 5.0mm (7 to 5 TPI).
These Class M tolerance threading inserts incorporate a 3D chipbreaker on the rake surface for smooth chip evacuation, which typically becomes a bottleneck in threading operations. The price structure is set so that these new additions are up to 40% more competitive than others offering conventional ground inserts with a flat top rake.
A 3D chipbreaker on the rake surface prevents chip entanglement on the tool or the workpiece, as is the case with the conventional ground threading inserts. Due to this improvement, machine downtime is significantly reduced, increasing productivity. Since these inserts are made with mould without grinding work, the price is up to 40% more competitive than a conventional ground insert with a flat top rake. No need for additional new holders: The inserts can be used on the Tungaloy’s existing toolholders.
