October 2013 - Constructed of rugged MT8 carbide with Carmex Precision Tool LLCʼs exclusive BLU coating, the new FMT thread mill delivers exceptionally accurate thread geometry and surface quality in shorter cycle times, according to the company. Unlike conventional taps, the FMT can thread up to the bottom of a blind hole while delivering the high reliability necessary for complex parts.

Jeff Dei, President of Carmex USA, comments: "The secret to FMTʼs high-speed performance is the increased number of flutes. This requires an extremely heavy duty carbide grade, as well as advanced coating technology in order to ensure the highest degree of performance and longer tool life. In a recent test, an FMT thread mill with a 6-flute cutter and internal coolant created a 10mm internal right-hand thread to the bottom of a blind hole in SAE 4340 steel. The cycle time was 1.5 seconds and the tool life was an amazing 2,170 threads. In that test, and in any number of other applications, the FMT is emerging as the ideal thread mill for high production/high demand applications."
