Key information on threading

There are a variety of machining strategies used in the metal working industry to produce top-quality components. Threading comes with its own set of challenges. Contact us to find out more about related applications and the associated requirements.
What is threading, and what are the main factors to consider? Here are the things you need to know to succeed.

A screw thread can be used in many ways, for example, as a fastening screw thread, a motion screw thread or a transport thread. Thread cutting, thread drilling and thread milling are all methods used to create a thread. Each has its own special features, requiring detailed planning to ensure success.

Thread cutting: The rotating tool generates the cutting motion, with the feed rate corresponding to the thread pitch. Based on the type of thread, it will be necessary to adjust the number of cutting passes as well as the cutting depth.

Thread milling: While the thread is created by a rotating tool and the plunge motion it makes, the thread pitch is a result of the lateral movement during a rotation of the tool.

Thread drilling: The thread is created by the rotation of the tool, with the feed rate corresponding to the pitch.

To select the right tool, you will need to precisely define the thread requirements. When choosing the machining strategy, the form, pitch and direction of the thread are critical factors. The specific properties of the material also play a crucial role during planning.

ZCC Cutting Tools is there to answer any questions you may have. Do you need help with your threading applications? Then contact us. We’re there to help.

For me it’s important that we provide our customers with the best possible training. Our philosophy is that success is based on a strong foundation of technical expertise.
