Thread turning

Thread turning is a demanding operation, where chip control and consistent tool life are critical to success. Our extensive assortment of thread turning tools covers a wide range of thread profiles and pitches. Choose one of these tools and ensure efficient, secure thread turning.

How to get the best machining result

Choosing the right infeed method

Three of the most common infeed methods are modified flank infeed, radial infeed, and incremental infeed. Find out which one provides the longest tool life and best chip control on our knowledge pages.

Wondering how to choose geometry?

Insert geometry can affect tool life, the quality of the end result, and cutting forces. Find out which is best for your project.

Limiting chip problems

In thread turning, chips often coil around robots, chucks, tools and components. Learn about the benefits of modified flank infeed and opposite flank infeed.

Reducing vibration

Vibration is one of the most common challenges in thread turning, damaging productivity as well as thread quality. Review the most common causes and solutions in our troubleshooting section.

Selecting the right shim

Insert shims are used to give different tilts to the insert, so that the angle of insert inclination (λ) is the same as the helix of the thread. Use our table to select the right insert shim for you.

Built-up edge or plastic deformation?

What type of insert wear are you having trouble with? Use our list of causes and solutions to different forms of insert wear in order to succeed with your threading.
