The TC430 Supreme is Walter AG's new HSS-E-PM thread former especially for ISO P materials. It is available with or without lubrication grooves and with one of three types of internal cooling: axial, radial, or none at all. The thread former is suitable for blind holes and through holes, and comes in two grades.
The extremely long tool life is the result of a new substrate, a geometry with more polygons, and an innovative new kind of pre-treatment and post-treatment. The result is that, despite having more polygons, the TC430 Supreme reduces the torque by around 30%. This means that the TC430 Supreme is ideally suited to machines with a low power consumption. The multilayer HIPIMS coating is a completely new feature that makes it possible to achieve an extremely long tool life in all ISO P materials.
The multilayer HIPIMS coating is a completely new feature that makes it possible to achieve an extremely long tool life in all ISO P materials. This is in addition to the general benefits of thread formers, such as creating a high-strength thread, having a strong tool design against the risk of breakage, not forming chips, not making mis-cuts and producing excellent surface finishes. Its special characteristics, which have been specially tailored to ISO P materials, make the TC430 Supreme the number one solution for creating tear-resistant threads under the application of dynamic force. Such threads are required, for example, in general mechanical engineering, in the automotive sector and in the energy industry.
