New tools for milling small threads


A new thread milling system, designated DCG, has been developed by Horn for producing M1 to M2.5 metric ISO threads DIN 13 – 20. The solid carbide, single-row, coated milling cutters, which have extremely sharp edges and are suitable for universal use, are available as standard for producing a thread length up to 2 x D. They demonstrate their special capabilities and efficiency when machining steels, stainless steels, cast iron, non-ferrous metals and in particular hard-to-cut materials used in the medical sector, for example.

DCG solid carbide mills have been proving themselves in the production of clean, high quality threads from M3 to M12 for many years. As the single-row milling cutters can be used for different pitches, a high degree of flexibility is provided.
