walter threadmill supremeClick image to enlargeThe TC470 Supreme solid carbide thread former from Walter combines a new geometry with more forming edges than comparable thread formers. 

It features a new coating and surface treatment for better tool life, higher productivity, and increased process reliability in large batch and high-volume production while achieving a lower cost per thread. 

The exceptionally smooth-yet-hard coating improves surface quality, which, in turn, significantly reduces torque requirements. Intended for blind hole and through hole threads and thread depths up to 3.5 x DN in steel, it has also shown good results in machining cast iron and aluminum. 

The TC470 Supreme is offered in four variants: With or without lubrication grooves and/or internal coolant, as well as with radial or axial coolant outlet, optimized for long and short threads. Choose a dimension range of (metric) M3–M10 or (metric fine) M10 × 1–M16 × 1.5.
