EMUGE-FRANKEN USA Introduces Line of Multipurpose Thread Mills
New MultiTHREAD Line Offers Cost-Effective Universal Thread Milling Solution for Job Shop Manufacturers
WEST BOYLSTON, MA U.S.A. (January 11, 2022) – Today, EMUGE-FRANKEN USA, a leading manufacturer of high-performance taps, thread mills, end mills, drills, and other rotary tools, has announced the launch of a new line of multipurpose thread mills designed for threading a wide range of standard materials efficiently and economically. Ideal for job shop manufacturing where part applications and materials frequently change, EMUGE MultiTHREAD™ Thread Mills provide a versatile solution for many threadmaking requirements.
MultiTHREAD Thread Mills enable shops to boost their production output and save on threadmaking costs, as fewer types of thread mills need to be stocked in the tool crib and the possibility of broken taps and scrapped parts are eliminated. “MultiTHREAD cuts most materials that job shops encounter while providing thread accuracy, quality and finish with high process security and control,” said Marlon Blandon, EMUGE-FRANKEN USA Thread Milling Product Manager.
MultiTHREAD Thread Mills feature a proprietary TIN T21 coating developed by EMUGE, which reduces chip welding and improves chip evacuation. MultiTHREAD Thread Mills also allow one tool to thread both through and blind holes and make right or left-hand threads. Two types of sub-micro grain carbide thread mills are offered – full form or single plane. Full form thread mills that machine threads in one timesaving cutting rotation, feature a rigid core diameter that reduces deflection. The single plane design enables one tool to produce multiple thread sizes and allows the pitch diameter to be controlled.
EMUGE MultiTHREAD Thread Mills are available in a broad range of types and sizes. Full form 2XD thread mills range from No.10 to 3/4ʺ sizes in solid tools, and 1/4ʺ to 1ʺ sizes in coolant-through tools. Full form thread mills are also available in metric sizes. Single plane 2XD thread mills range from No. 0 to 3/4ʺ including STI sizes in inch, and 3XD single plane mills range from No. 2 to 3/4ʺ. Single plane models are available in either solid, or coolant-through on larger sizes. In total, over 80 SKUs of MultiTHREAD tools are stocked as standard.
