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:

G6 (6 CUTTING EDGES) THREADING INSERTS (PARTIAL PROFILE)

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

3 CUTTING EDGES TOOL HOLDERS (19/20 MM, SLIM)

The external tool holders in this product line work in conjunction with 3 cutting edge inserts from our Swiss-Line family (only those with sizes of 19 mm and 20 mm). They differ from the basic “3 cutting edges” holders, by offering slimmer bodies and necks – making them well suited 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
  • Variants available for right-hand and left-hand applications

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, TGER/L 1212 K, and G6ER/L 0500 K

Features:

  • The coolant connector allows for fast attachment on the machine
