The high production, superior finish and long life advantages of Carmex's new BLU sub-micron grade carbide with advanced PVD triple coating are now available for small-sized Acme threads in the 5 to 16 range. The latest addition to the Carmex mini mill-thread line covers 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16 Acme with shank sizes ranging from 1/4" to 5/8" and diameters from .170" to .625".
In introducing the new Acme line, Jeff Dei, president of Carmex USA stated, "The superior strength of Acme threads has long been appreciated for large-sized applications. Now, designers of smaller scale complex parts are specifying Acme threads in new and unique applications. To answer that demand, Carmex engineers developed an Acme internal threading tool within the context of our mini mill-thread line. We manufacture it using our new BLU carbide with PVD triple coating. The result is a tool capable of high performance and improved surface finish, even in the hardest materials. It is the ideal combination of one of the oldest thread designs with the newest in cutting tool technology."
