Launched within the existing CoroPlus Tool Path software, the OptiThreading software module helps manufacturers overcome an issue within thread turning – chip jams and their associated downtime.

As part of the solution, CoroPlus Tool Path helps users develop OptiThreading tool paths that overcome the challenge of chip control and optimize thread turning by offering tool paths that deliver controlled, oscillating movements for interrupted cuts on all passes except the last one.

Using OptiThreading eliminates long chips that can damage a component’s surface and interfere with the cutting zone. It also results in less manual work to remove long chips jamming the tool, component, or chip conveyor, resulting in fewer unplanned machine stops. OptiThreading allows increased cutting speeds for shorter cycle times and improved productivity.

OptiThreading creates high cutting forces and needs a tool that can withstand them, so the CoroThread 266 has an iLock interface delivering stability for insert indexing, making it able to handle extreme forces. The tool is available with a selection of grades and geometries covering most materials and applications.
