LMT Shows Good Form With New Threading Tools

LMT Shows Good Form With New Threading Tools

Added to MTDCNC by LMT UK Ltd on 07 February 2017

As the experts on threading tools, LMT has conducted extensive research on the development and use of threading tools. The result of this effort is the expansion of LMT Tools extensive threading range with another top performer, the solid carbide FormMax forming tap. It consists of a newly developed fine grain carbide with a specially optimised former geometry. To further increase the thread quality and tool life, the new coated surface has undergone a special smoothing process to enhance chip flow and evacuation.

The impressive new FormMax from LMT Fette certainly maximizes the forming speed of the thread to ensure maximum tool life with the greatest process reliability. Compared to a similar HSS thread former, the FormMax achieves a 5 times higher tool life whilst simultaneously doubling the thread forming speed. This increases machine utilisation and significantly reduces production costs.

The tools in the FormMax range have been designed with an internal coolant supply with a radial or axial exit. This permits the production of through-hole and blind-hole threads with the highest possible quality. The ideal area of application for the FormMax forming tap is in the automotive industry, however the new line can also be applied for free usage in the ISO material ranges of P, M and N applications. The standard range of FormMax thread formers covers the dimensions from M4 to M12 and MF8 to MF14.
