The high performance Vardex MiTM line of solutions for super-fast machining from Vargus USA (Janesville, WI) has now been extended to include MiTM 19 for small bore cutting diameters, from M11 by 0.5 (7/16-32UN). The new MiTM 19 line features an impressive array of single-flute tools suited to machining standard and conical applications and producing pitches in the 0.50 mm to 2.0 mm (32 tpi to 12 tpi) range.
Designed to provide increased tool stability over TM Standard tools, MiTM 19 tools also feature long inserts (19 mm), which enables the machining of longer threads in a single pass and offers significantly improved productivity. MiTM 19 VBX and VTX coated inserts are available in the following thread profiles: ISO, UN, Whitworth, NPT, NPTF, and BSPT.
The MiTM 19 toolholder range includes standard and conical styles with a toolholder shank diameter of 12 mm (.50 in) and a maximum tool overhang of 25.2 mm (1 in). As with the entire MiTM range, all MiTM 19 toolholders are nickel coated for improved rust protection and a longer tool life and include through-tool coolant for improved chip evacuation and cooling at the cutting corner.
