UFO Thread Milling Insert
YIH TROUN UFO thread milling insert uses CNC milling program to machine threads in a spiral approach. The thread milling insert with multi-tooth design provides high machining efficiency, it comes with full-profile inserts / partial profile inserts and small-diameter solid carbide thread milling, with the angles expressed in both imperial and metric units.
The partial profile insert is a single pitch with multiple (4-6) teeth design for low resistance and high efficiency, same insert can produce different pitch and thread size. One single insert can complete the machining of a variety threads such as internal threads, external threads, pipe threads RC / NPT. The UFO thread milling insert is the best choice for even machining large-size threads on a small machine, or when high precision threads are required. The partial profile insert handles dozens of thread sizes, and when a workpiece needs different thread sizes, a single insert can get the job done in one go with minimum change of insert and no need of taps.
The full profile insert is designed with (2-3) pitches and multiple (4-6) teeth. Its machining resistance is much lower than the thread milling insert in multiple pitch but single teeth design which available in the market, and therefore gives higher efficiency and longer tool life.
The tap is mostly the fastest with most absolute sizes, but sometimes requires multi-diameter long in thread length or faces difficulties in machining large-size threads due to insufficient power of the machine. The UOF thread milling insert offers the best solution, with small machining resistance, high thread precision, and adjustable thread sizes.
The full series offer pitch angles of 55° and 60°, along with the full profile and partial profile standard inserts in diameters of Ø 10, Ø 12, Ø 15, Ø 20, Ø 25. For application programs, please see the catalog examples on various threads.
