    Default Thread Milling - Conventional - VMX-64 w/UltiMAX 4

    We have never done any thread milling before.

    I have looked over some old posts but still have questions.

    We are planning on making M37-1.5 Nuts .3125 Thick

    We have a Kennametal Thread Milling cutter TM25D81L150Z3 and it takes 3 InsertsTM25N150ISO
    They are 25 MM Long with 1.5 Pitch

    1st thing is: Should I tell the Controller it is a Tap or an End Mill?
    There is no thread Mill option for tool type

    I know from what I have seen in posts: Helix is the key to getting it programed.

    I have seen posts that say to Not use Tool Comp and some that say to use Tool Comp

    Any help or guidance will be greatly appreciated

    Have you gotten this sorted yet? I'd be glad to help if you still need it.
