Boring, Grooving & Threading
(Single Point)

Features: Wide variety of shank sizes and lengths for optimal rigidity. Flats on shank for ease of set-up. Submicron grade carbide with AlTiN+ coating option.

Single point tools include miniature boring, qualified length boring bars and thread tools, profile boring, helical flute boring, back chamfering, retaining ring and full radius grooving, face grooving, undercut grooving, Acme and stub Acme, and PCD or CBN tipped boring bars. A variety of tool holder options are available. Holders come in inch and metric options and span from utility to premium coolant ring technology holders.

Port and Cavity Tools

Features tools that meet one or more of the following standards: MS33651, AND10071, SAEJ1926-1, SAEJ514, ORB, AS5202, SAEJ2244-1, AND10050, NPT threads, ISO/BS2779, AS1300, AS33514, AS1300, PS10035, 6M152, AS4201,NAS-1214, NAS1215, BACD2036SCTTools-1-lmEdit

Port and cavity tools are versatile and can be used on a mill or lathe. While milling is a more popular method, the flexibility often works in one’s favor. Scientific Cutting Tools offers a wide selection of on-the-shelf port and cavity tools with high performance features including coolant through options and AlTiN+ coating. Modifications to standard tools and special port and cavity tools made to print.

Tools for Milling Machines

Thread Mills

Features tools with one of the following thread forms: UN, UNF, UNEF, UNC, UNJ, NPT, NPTF, ISO Metric, BSPP, BSPT, Acme, Stub Acme. 

Thread mills are very versatile; multiple diameters with the same thread pitch can be milled with the same tool as well as right and left hand threads. One of the largest advantages it has over taps is the very low horsepower required. This makes thread mills great for small milling machines. In-stock thread milling tools are available in various geometries to maximize thread cutting performance in demanding applications including, straight, helical, staggered, long reach, coolant through and single profile styles. Thread mills also work well for STI thread applications.

Specialty End Mills

Features: End Mills held to exacting tolerances for a variety of chamfering, engraving, and corner rounding applications. 

The Helical-fluted chamfer mills reduce cutting forces considerably compared to straight fluted versions. 3 fluted varieties are preferable for cutting aluminum while 5 fluted versions excel at cutting harder materials. Shank sizes range from 1/8″ to ¾”. Available in 60, 90 and 120 degree included angles.

Engraving tools available from 1/8″ to ½” shanks in a wide variety of included angles including 30, 40, 60, 90 and 120 degrees.

Corner rounding end mills in a double-ended design in shank sizes from 1/8″ to ½” and radii from 0.005″ to 0.187”. The free cutting 3 flute design works well in a wide variety of materials.

Port and Cavity Tools

Features tools that meet one or more of the following standards: MS33651, AND10071, SAEJ1926-1, SAEJ514, ORB, AS5202, SAEJ2244-1, AND10050, NPT threads, ISO/BS2779, AS1300, AS33514, AS1300, PS10035, 6M152, AS4201,NAS-1214, NAS1215, BACD2036cavity_webready
