Thread whirling cutter
Thread whirl cutters are ideal for the machining of threads in difficult materials (from 0.3 mm to 12 mm (.0118ˮ to .472ˮ)) and for thread depths of up to 4 x d (pocket holes). Whether it's about low cutting pressures in a multi-purpose application, the machining of titanium and stainless steels or burr-free threads needed in the medical field, the different executions of this type of tool guarantee the best results. Available in M, MF, UNC and UNF threads.

Threading tools especially for typical and challenging materials for aerospace industry applications. Aluminum or titanium alloys, stainless steels (ferritic, martensitic) and nickel-based alloys or superalloys (Inconel, Nimonic alloy and Hastelloy, among others). DC Swiss offers a wide range of tools as standard solutions compliant with ISO 3161 (MJ, UNJ, UNJF).
A thread cutting tap with a centrally controlled, straight cooling channel and special cutting geometry for breaking chips. The chip fragments are evacuated from the thread with the coolant through extended, straight-line flutes. For deep threads or threads with deep pilot bores; very high reliability.
