Mikron Corp. Monroe, which specializes in high-precision cutting tools in small and medium-sized diameter ranges, expands its offer by adding a new product family. Another Swiss quality product, tapping and threading tools from the DC Swiss, is now available directly from inventory at Mikron Corp. Monroe in Connecticut.
DC Swiss has been selected as a partner due to its high level of specialized know-how and its decades-long experience in threading technology. Thread cutting tools from DC Swiss are made using the latest and most modern manufacturing technologies to guarantee cost efficient and extremely consistent, flawless quality production, according to the company.
DC Swiss develops and produces top quality threading tools for many industry segments and all materials. Solutions for diameters 0.3 to 160mm (.0118" to 6.3") including taps, thread mills and thread forming tools form a wide program covering all needs.
Special highlights are:
• High performance solutions for materials difficult to machine such as titanium alloys, Ni-alloys and all kinds stainless steel alloys
• Nano program for smallest threads
• Thread whirl cutters for difficult materials even in smallest diameters starting from 0.3mm (.0118")
• Threading tools for aerospace materials and norms
• Special "Fit Line" program dedicated specifically for the U.S. market (in DIN length/ANSI shank diameters)
• A large range of these tools is available from the central stock in U.S. to guarantee prompt availability and short delivery times

Substances having metallic properties and being composed of two or more chemical elements of which at least one is a metal.
Main body of a tool; the portion of a drill or similar end-held tool that fits into a collet, chuck or similar mounting device.
Machining operation in which a tap, with teeth on its periphery, cuts internal threads in a predrilled hole having a smaller diameter than the tap diameter. Threads are formed by a combined rotary and axial-relative motion between tap and workpiece. See tap.
Process of both external (e.g., thread milling) and internal (e.g., tapping, thread milling) cutting, turning and rolling of threads into particular material. Standardized specifications are available to determine the desired results of the threading process. Numerous thread-series designations are written for specific applications. Threading often is performed on a lathe. Specifications such as thread height are critical in determining the strength of the threads. The material used is taken into consideration in determining the expected results of any particular application for that threaded piece. In external threading, a calculated depth is required as well as a particular angle to the cut. To perform internal threading, the exact diameter to bore the hole is critical before threading. The threads are distinguished from one another by the amount of tolerance and/or allowance that is specified. See turning.
