Self-Lock threading tools for safety critical applications

Share This Post

Emuge-Franken USA has announced the expansion of its line of Self-Lock thread locking tools to include new Emuge ZGF-S-Cut Thread Mills, in addition to Emuge High Ramp Precision Thread Gages designed for gauging Emuge Self-Lock thread profiles.

The new ZGF-S-Cut Self-Lock Thread Mills with helical flutes, multiple teeth and TIALN-T46 coating produce self-locking threads that are suited for demanding industry applications such as aerospace, where nickel alloys, titanium and stainless steel are the norm. A unique design enables three tooth pitches to simultaneously rough and finish-cut threads, dramatically increasing tool life and reducing cycle times.

“As the demand for self-locking threads for safety critical applications increases, our new ZGF-S-Cut Self-Lock thread milling products with unique geometry provide more threading options,” said Marlon Blandon, thread milling product manager, Emuge-Franken USA. “Interest in our Self-Lock threading tools, which have been successfully applied for years, continues to rise.”

The new Emuge ZGF-S-Cut self-locking thread mills have a left-hand helix flute design with left-hand spindle rotation, which enhances stability and cutting performance. The first of three cutting teeth acts as a rougher, while the second and third teeth finish the full thread profile, reducing cycle time and prolonging tool life. TIALN-T46 coating resists heat and wear and further extends tool life.

“Our ZGF-S-Cut design provides tool life which can exceed 10 times that of conventional thread mills,” said Blandon. The new thread mills are available in 16 sizes from 2-56 up to ½-20″ for UNC or UNF threads, and tools starting at the ¼” size and larger feature axial coolant capability.
