Emuge-Franken USA has announced the launch of a new line of multipurpose thread mills.

The MultiThread series is designed for threading a wide range of standard materials in job shop manufacturing contexts where part applications and materials frequently change.

Emuge says the 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 danger of broken taps and scrapped parts is eliminated. “MultiThread cuts most materials that job shops encounter while providing thread accuracy, quality and finish with high process security and control,” says Marlon Blandon, Emuge-Franken USA thread milling product manager.

The thread mills feature an Emuge proprietary TIN T21 coating that reduces chip welding and improves chip evacuation. The 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. The full form thread mills machine threads in a single cutting rotation and 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.

The MultiThread thread mills are available in a broad range of types and sizes. Full form 2XD thread mills range from No.10 to ¾ in. sizes in solid tools, and 1/4 to 1 in. 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 ¾ in. 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.
