Walter unveils new universal indexable thread mill and insert.

Newest thread mill delivers cost, reliability, and quality benefits.

Walter has introduced the T2713, a universal indexable
thread mill suitable for a variety of materials up to 55 HRC. This newest
addition to the Walter thread milling system combines the advantages of
thread milling with the efficiency of tapping. Due to the smooth cutting and
lower cutting forces, machining times can be comparable to those of thread
tapping and forming.

In addition to fast machining, users also benefit from the high process
reliability of thread milling, ease of handling and few radius corrections, high
operational smoothness, cylindrical threads, and excellent thread quality.
The new, flexible T2713 handles various thread pitches and lengths and
features a modular tool body with Walter Capto™ C8 interface for large
threads and/or long overhangs.
In conjunction with its release of the T2713 Walter is also releasing its
22 mm IC, P26300 thread milling insert. This new insert is ideal for
machining thread diameters starting at M125 with a thread pitch between

6-10 mm, or UN5 in. with a thread pitch of 4 TPI. The insert, with 55° flank
angle, is designed for use in single row bodies and has D61 geometry for
maximum process reliability.
