EMUGE Expands Thread Mill Line With A Range Of New, Innovative Tools

Complimentary Product Guide Details Extensive, Expanded Line of Thread Mills

Today, EMUGE-FRANKEN USA, a leading manufacturer of high-performance taps, thread mills, end mills, drills, and other rotary tools, has introduced a significantly expanded line of Thread Mills, including innovative solutions for challenging threading applications and materials such as nickel alloys, titanium, high tensile strength steels, hardened high alloy steels, cast iron, cast aluminum and more. EMUGE-FRANKEN offers manufacturers a wide breadth of tooling options and industry-leading designs with five distinct thread mill tool families to address a range of machining requirements.

“To improve productivity and profitability in the most challenging threading applications, we are pleased to offer a significantly broadened line of new and unique thread mills,” said Mr. Marlon Blandon. “The science of thread milling is constantly progressing to efficiently machine tougher, higher cost materials and complex parts, and EMUGE-FRANKEN is continually innovating to meet the latest needs.”

The five EMUGE Solid Carbide Thread Mills distinct tool families include:

  • THREADS-ALL™ family of thread mils that are designed for difficult threading operations and can make a range of thread sizes including smaller ones, available in single and multi-plane options. A complete line of 2xD and 3xD sizes provide maximum reach. THREADS-ALL/ AERO thread mills are ideal for demanding materials and industries such as aerospace where nickel alloys, titanium and stainless steel are the norm.
  • THRILLER style Thread Mills combine the drilling and thread milling process into one tool, eliminating the need for tool changes and saving machine tool carousel space. THRILLER thread mills are best suited for short-chipping cast aluminum alloys and cast iron. THRILLER-AERO thread mills are ideal for aerospace and nickel alloys, titanium and stainless steel materials.
  • SHUR-THREAD™ Thread Mills are full profile cutters offering high process stability in a range of challenging materials. SHUR-THREAD is designed to cut one thread size and pitch, requiring a single 360° cutting rotation to complete the full threading operation.
  • VARIO Full Profile Thread Mills are full profile thread mills manufactured to cut one specific pitch size but can also produce more than one thread size for universal material applications.
  • GIGANT-IC™ Carbide Insert Style Thread Mills facilitate quick set-ups and rapid changeovers when creating internal and external threads, right-hand and left-hand threads, as well as threads in very large holes. GIGANT-IC is suitable for cutting low- and high-alloyed steels up to 1,400 N/mm2, stainless steel and cast materials, alloys including aluminum, copper, magnesium and titanium, and synthetics.
  • New EMUGE Thread Mills in the expanded line include:
  • THREADS-ALL™/ MAX line of premium sub-micro grain solid carbide thread mills that are designed for maximum performance in high tensile strength and hardened materials from 44 to 66 HRC.
  • THREADS-ALL™/ HEADED line featuring circular thread milling bar/ bodies with exchangeable face inserts, provide an excellent modular solution for milling larger thread dimensions in stainless steel, titanium, nickel alloys, cast iron and hardened high alloy steels >25 HRC, and mold and tools steels.
  • THRILLER-MAX Thread Mills which are designed to dramatically improve tool life and performance in hard-to-machine, high tensile strength materials 44-66 HRC.
  • VARIO-Z External Thread Mills are specifically designed to produce external threads in a wide range of materials and applications.
  • VARIO SKIP Tooth Thread Milling Cutters with alternating tooth rows are designed to reduce radial cutting forces, and provide an option to remove the incomplete thread.

A comprehensive 44-page EMUGE Thread Milling Product Guide is available that provides details and specifications about the broad and expanded line, illustrated with vivid applications photography, tool pictures and technical drawings. Included in the Guide are product descriptions, recommended feeds and speeds, and application and materials data.
