Mill Thread Indexable

Carmex Mill-Thread line of Inserts and Tool Holders is recognized worldwide for its full range of high quality inserts and tool holders answering to all the common thread standards and more. 
Carmex system design is the most popular being produced also by most of the other thread milling tools manufacturers, thus, interchangeable, an advantage for the customers.
Carmex offers five different inserts sizes from 12mm up to 40mm length to cover applications from small to big diameters.
To support the inserts, a wide range of tool holders is included in the line, steel shank or carbide shank, for one insert or more.
All the tool holders including a built in coolant bore.
The advantages of using Mill-Thread tools and Carmex's in particular are:
  • Same toolholder and insert can produce both right-hand and left-hand threads.
  • A single insert & toolholder can produce a given thread on many diameters (External & Internal).  
  • Prismatic shape of insert's tail ensures exact and reliable clamping in the toolholder.
  • Most inserts are double sided, having two cutting edges.
  • Thread is produced in one tool pass.
  • MT tools can produce tapered threads.
  • Improved productivity thanks to increased cutting speeds and multitooth type carbide inserts.
  • Threading to one pitch of a shoulder in a blind hole.
  • Longer tool life thanks to a special multilayer coating process.
  • Lower tooling costs, considerably less expensive than using taps and dies.
  • Since lower machine power is required, a smaller machine can produce larger threads in a single operation with less idle time and tool changes.
  • Enables machining of asymmetrical parts.
