Modular Adaptors for Threaded Shanks

Carbide & Steel Round Extension Shanks for Screwed Shank Milling Heads – View Now

  • Ideal for long reach or deep pocket milling applications
  • Metric thread connection
  • Choice of Steel shanks in taper or straight neck
  • Carbide shanks for extra rigidity
  • Korloy modular adaptors can be used with other manufacturers milling heads

Most indexable milling bodies are only available in 1-2 choices of length, so when an application needed a very long tool arrises, a standard end mill can be too short. This can be solved by buying a modular shank and modular head.  The modular shank has a male metric thread and modular head a female thread.  This makes milling up to depths of 400mm possible with end mills from 16mm to 40mm diameter. Modular shanks are available in steel shanks (lower cost) or carbide shanks (increased rigidity in longer depths).  Carbide shanks are a must where high quality surface finish is required.


Korloy offer shanks up to 300mm long in 10mm to 40mm diameter plus a range of milling heads for different application:

Alpha Mill for 90 degree slotting and square shoulder milling, Laser Mill for copy milling (ball nosed or corner radius) mould steels up to 65 Rockwell, Pro-X Mill for aluminium machining and copy milling, HRM Double for high feed milling & FMR tools for button insert / copy milling.
