Press Release Summary:
Available in 2xD and 3xD models,Â Orbital Unified National Fine Thread Mills feature large shank diameters that promote vibration-free machining. Tough micrograin carbide construction with TiCN coating renders mills suitable for use with ISO material types P, M, K, N, S, and O. In addition, short overhang makes tools particularly suitable for machining of challenging materials such as ISO S alloys, materials of high tensile strength, and materials with spring back effect.

New Orbital Thread Mills from Walter Boost Process Reliability, Cut Cost
The new Walter Orbital Unified National Fine (UNF) 2xD and 3xD thread mills handle tough to machine materials while reducing machining time and costs.
Waukesha, WI – Walter has introduced its latest orbital thread mills, the Thread Mill Orbital Unified National Fine (UNF) 2xD and 3xD models. Their large shank diameters promote vibration free machining, even with a long clamping length, and their wear resistant, tough micrograin carbide construction with TiCN coating renders them suitable for use with ISO material types P, M, K, N, S and O.
Both the UNF 2xD and 3xD exhibit superior behavior over the lifetime of the tool, and their short overhang renders them particularly suitable for the machining of challenging materials such as ISO S alloys, materials of higher tensile strength and materials with spring back effect.
This combination of design features, along with the inherent advantages of thread milling itself, enable the Walter Orbital Thread Mill UNF 2xD and 3xD to deliver higher process reliability -- particularly crucial when dealing with today’s higher value workpieces, along with more true to gauge threads before manual corrections are necessary. In addition, their ability to run with a higher chip load permits a reduced number of passes. This shortens cycle time and allows longer machine time without manual adjustments.
Walter, a global leader in the metalworking industry with over 90 years of experience in precision cutting tools for milling, drilling, turning, boring and specialized tools, helps customers improve process reliability and increase productivity. With Regional Headquarters in Waukesha, WI, Walter markets its competence brands Walter Valenite, Walter Titex, Walter Prototyp and Walter Multiply through a strong network of distributors and field engineers across subsidiaries in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.
