THREAD TURNING

Swiss-Line

In many companies, Swiss-type machines are becoming a popular alternative to large lathes and machining centers. As a result, we developed a family of indexable tools designed for use with automatic lathes and Swiss-type machines. These tools enable high-volume, cost-efficient machining of external grooving, back/front turning, profiling, thread turning, parting, and general turning applications.

Features:

  • Grounded cutting edges
  • The inserts can be indexed directly on the machine
  • Coated holders provide abrasion resistance

The following product lines can used for thread turning:

POLYGON THREADING INSERTS (PARTIAL PROFILE)

A product line of partial-profile threading inserts, suitable for cutting external threads. These inserts (like all polygon inserts) are designed specially for the production of small parts.

Features:

  • Inserts available for 60° and 55° profiles
  • Solutions available for pitches from 0.25 mm / 100 TPI to 3.0 mm / 8 TPI
  • Variants for both right-hand and left-hand cutting exist

Carbide Grade:

PVD triple layer coated sub-micron grade for stainless steels, cast iron, titanium, non-ferrous metals, and most high-temperature alloys (M10-M20, K05-K20, N10-N20, S10-S20)
Uncoated carbide grade. Optimized for non-ferrous metals, aluminum, and cast iron. (K10-K30)

G6 (6 CUTTING EDGES) THREADING INSERTS (PART. PROF.)

These partial-profile threading inserts were designed for machining external threads. Like all G6 inserts, these inserts are compatible with a wide variety of diameters: From very small, thin-walled applications – to diameters as large as 60 mm. The six cutting edges help to achieve high productivity, while maintaining an outstanding cost-effectiveness ratio.

Features:

  • Strong and stable clamping due to the unique insert shape
  • Inserts available for 60° and 55° profiles
  • Solutions available for pitches from 0.5 mm / 48 TPI to 3.0 mm / 8 TPI
  • Variants for both right-hand and left-hand cutting exist

Carbide Grade:

PVD triple layer coated sub-micron grade for stainless steels, cast iron, titanium, non-ferrous metals, and most high-temperature alloys (M10-M20, K05-K20, N10-N20, S10-S20)
Uncoated carbide grade. Optimized for non-ferrous metals, aluminum, and cast iron. (K10-K30)

3 CUTTING EDGES THREADING INSERTS (PARTIAL PROFILE)

The basic product line of partial-profile threading inserts for machining external threads on Swiss-type machines. All inserts of this product line feature three cutting edges, helping to improve productivity.

Features:

  • Inserts available for 60° and 55° profiles
  • Solutions available for pitches from 0.5 mm / 48 TPI to 3.0 mm / 8 TPI
  • Variants for both right-hand and left-hand cutting exist

Carbide Grade:

PVD triple layer coated sub-micron grade for stainless steels, cast iron, titanium, non-ferrous metals, and most high-temperature alloys (M10-M20, K05-K20, N10-N20, S10-S20)
Uncoated carbide grade. Optimized for non-ferrous metals, aluminum, and cast iron. (K10-K30)

3 CUTTING EDGES THREADING INSERTS (FULL PROFILE)

A prime product line of full-profile threading inserts. The inserts in this line were created to machine external threading applications on Swiss-type machines. They all feature three cutting edges, thus improving the productivity.

Features:

  • Inserts available for ISO and UN profiles
  • Solutions available for pitches from 0.5 mm / 72 TPI to 1.75 mm / 20 TPI
  • Variants for both right-hand and left-hand cutting exist

Carbide Grade:

PVD triple layer coated sub-micron grade for stainless steels, cast iron, titanium, non-ferrous metals, and most high-temperature alloys (M10-M20, K05-K20, N10-N20, S10-S20)
Uncoated carbide grade. Optimized for non-ferrous metals, aluminum, and cast iron. (K10-K30)

POLYGON TOOL HOLDERS (WITHOUT COOLANT)

A product line of external holders for Polygon inserts from the Swiss-Line family. These holders do not support through-coolant.

Features:

  • Each Polygon insert is compatible with every holder in the line (“one size fits all”)
  • Variants available for right-hand and left-hand applications

POLYGON TOOL HOLDERS (WITH COOLANT)

External holders for Polygon inserts from the Swiss-Line family. These holders provide an upgrade over the basic Polygon holders, by including support for through-coolant (via the included coolant connector).

Features:

  • The coolant connector allows for fast attachment on the machine
  • Each Polygon insert is compatible with every holder in the line (“one size fits all”)
  • Variants available for right-hand and left-hand applications

G6 (6 CUTTING EDGES) TOOL HOLDERS

A product line of external holders for G6 inserts from the Swiss-Line family. Like all Swiss-Line holders, these holders are designed for machining of external turning applications in Swiss-type machines. They include support for through-coolant(*) (via the included coolant connector), helping to evacuate the chips as they are created – thus preventing a potentially damaging chip buildup.

(*) Except for G6ER/L 1212 K, and G6ER/L 0500 K

Features:

  • The coolant connector allows for fast attachment on the machine
  • Each G6 insert is compatible with every holder in the line (“one size fits all”)
  • Variants available for right-hand and left-hand applications

3 CUTTING EDGES TOOL HOLDERS

This product line contains external tool holders designed to work with Swiss-Line inserts with 3 cutting edges. Similar to other Swiss-Line holders, they too have been developed for the purposes of machining external turning applications in Swiss-type machines. They include support for through-coolant(*) (via the included coolant connector), which aids in prevention of potentially damaging chip buildup.

(*) Except for GER 0816 K and GEL 0816 K

Features:

  • The coolant connector allows for fast attachment on the machine
  • Variants available for right-hand and left-hand applications

3 CUTTING EDGES TOOL HOLDERS (SLIM)

The external tool holders in this product line differ from the basic “3 cutting edges” holders, by offering slimmer bodies and necks. This makes them especially suitable for smaller applications (though of course they can be used with standard applications as well). Just like with all other Swiss-Line holders, the main purpose of these holders is the machining of external turning applications in Swiss-type machines. They come with an integrated coolant connector which enables through-cooling to be used.

Features:

  • The coolant connector allows for fast attachment on the machine
  • Only right-hand jobs are currently supported
