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

Waukesha, WI—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.
