Emuge Corporation announces their SHUR-THREAD GFI Series of solid carbide thread mills.
Emuge Corporation’s (West Boylston MA) SHUR-THREAD GFI Series Thread Mills are now available with internal coolant supply. By precisely applying coolant where it is needed, waste is eliminated and chips are efficiently evacuated.
SHUR-THREAD offers high confidence machining, up to 2xD length of cut and other technologically advanced features. Offering an exceptional balance of performance benefits and price, the tooling line provides superb value for any size machine shop or production volume.
“Enhancing our SHUR-THREAD (GFI style) line with internal coolant capability provides our customers with an extremely efficient threading solution,” comments Mark Hatch, product manager, thread milling at Emuge. “Coolant is applied in the hole, where it is needed, to reduce heat and friction and allow for better chip evacuation.”
Emuge’s SHUR-THREAD series combines cutting-edge design elements with state-of-the-art grinding techniques for enhanced performance, versatility, reliability and ease-of-use. Featuring premium micro-grain carbide and TiCN-coated for exceptionally longer tool life, the thread mills are engineered with multiple spiral flutes to eliminate chatter.
Also, a large cutter diameter with high profile correction ensures true-to-gauge threads, and an extended milling portion allows for up to a 2xD length-of-cut. To further enhance performance, an enlarged flute space provides efficient chip evacuation and an end mill-type shank with clamping flat allows for secure tool holding.
The cutters produce threads for applications 1 in and under in a wide range of soft and pre-hardened steels to 58 Rc, stainless steels, aluminum, cast iron, titanium, inconel and difficult to machine exotics.
The SHUR-THREAD program consists of 20 tool sizes in two styles, type GFI and EZFI. Type EZFI is for thread sizes # 4 – # 6 – # 8, and type GFI is for thread sizes # 10 thru 1.0 in.
