Walter has launched the TC630 Supreme solid carbide orbital thread milling cutter.
Designed for blind-hole and through-hole threads, the cutter features new DeVibe anti-vibration technology. Unstable conditions and long overhangs often lead to vibration, poor thread surfaces or even fractures during thread milling. The patent pending DeVibe anti-vibration technology includes an anti-vibration land on the flank face, supporting the TC630 during machining and suppressing vibration.
DeVibe technology ensures operational smoothness and enables usable lengths up to 4×DN. It is ideal for small threads, long overhangs, unstable conditions or difficult materials. One reason for this is the geometry: since only one row of cutting edges is engaged at a time, the tool deflection is low, and the thread remains cylindrical. The moderate number of teeth also enables a high feed per tooth, minimizing wear.
The milling cutter for blind-hole and through-hole threads can be used universally, in all ISO materials up to 48 HRC and for all dimensions from M1.6 to M20. In addition, it is suitable for tools for metric fine-pitch threads, UNC, UNF and STI UNF – the latter primarily for the aerospace sector.
The TC630 Supreme provides a high level of process reliability for unstable machining operations, for example on lathes with driven tools or for long overhangs. Areas of application include medical engineering, precision engineering, and the aerospace sector, as well as electronics and general metalworking.
