Announcing the TC410 Advance HSS- E thread former means tooling expert Walter GB can now offer customers thread generation tooling covering more than 200 thread dimensions and tolerances.

With TiN coating, the new HSS-E tool can be used to form blind and through-hole threads (metric, metric fine, UNC/UNF and G) in all materials in the ISO groups P, M and N, as well as ISO K and S.

Importantly, and in addition to the general advantage of eliminating ‘tool wedging’ due to trapped chips – which means high process reliability - the TC410 Advance expounds reduced wear and therefore extended tool life due to its geometry and post-treatment process.

Its innovative profile reduces cutting time which, in turn, minimises friction and the amount of heat generated. Tool life is also benefited by the tool’s extremely smooth surface, which reduces torque requirements.

The resulting ability to produce more threads with the same tool equates to a thread former having an excellent price-to-performance ratio and one that is ideally suited to medium to large batch work.

Walter GB offers the TC410 Advance in two variants; without lubrication grooves or with grooves for deeper threads up to 3.5 x diameter.
