Short threads in next to no time

The Walter T2710 milling cutter impresses universally from 1.5 × DN

Tübingen, 24th November 2020 – with the T2710, Walter AG is now also carrying forward the concept of its multiple-row thread milling cutters to short threads. Thanks to small spaces between rows, the T2710 is specially designed for thread depths up to 1.5 × DN. Even with short threads, parallel machining of several thread sections reduces the machining time enormously. An effect that is further amplified by the highly wear-resistant thread milling cutter inserts of the Walter WSM37S Tiger·tec® Silver grade that can be used universally. Their geometry with chip breaker groove also ensures an easy cut and high operational smoothness, which enables high cutting speeds and feeds per tooth, while simultaneously reducing the radius corrections. For unfavourable conditions, Walter offers thread milling cutter inserts with D61 geometry "with anti-vibration land".

In addition to the high productivity and low costs per thread, users benefit from high thread quality and process reliability with the T2710. As well as the operational smoothness and low deflection of the tool thanks to the easy-cutting geometry, the reason for this is the variable internal coolant. Both radially and axially, it can be adapted to the machining of blind or through holes, so that each chip is optimally flushed from the thread. The T2710 for threads with a nominal diameter from 20 mm can be used universally for steels, stainless steels, cast iron, non-ferrous metals, high-temperature alloys or even hardened steels up to 55 HRC. Walter lists all areas with relevant applications as areas of application, e.g. oil and gas valves in the energy industry.
