Threading

Die threading

Process Chip-breaking operation when an outside threading tool cuts a thread in a pin.

Electrical discharge threading

Process Process where a controlled spark discharges from an electrically charged, threaded electrodes create a threaded hole.

Form Tapping

Process Forming process where a form tap with threads deforms the hole walls to create threads without any chip formed.

Internal thread whirling

Process Chip breaking operation when an angled cutting tool mills the internal thread of a rotating workpiece.

Tap threading

Process Tapping process with a cutting tap is rotated into a predrilled hole for cutting threads.

Thread grinding

Process Abrasive process with a grinding wheel cuts threads in a work piece which rotates slowly while being moved axially.

Thread Milling

Process Chip-breaking operation when threading tool rotates both around its own axis and also rotates around the hole center axis for milling a thread pattern on the walls of the hole.

Thread Rolling

Process Forming process where a workpiece is rolled between dies for forming an externally threaded design.

Thread turning

Process Chip-breaking operation when the threads are created by turning the cut tool that corresponds the target thread.
