.: Thread Milling
Thread milling is a process of thread production by Helical interpolation, it is done on CNC machining centres and CNC lathes with powered tooloing facilites.
WHY CHOOSE THREAD MILLING?
1. Versatility - one cutter produces internal, external, right and left hand, all sizes and class of fit, all materials for any constant pitch.
2. Consistency - selection of the correct cutter will produce repeated accuracy of size and quality, affected less by variationsin material processes.
3. Longest life - the process allows use of superior grades of HSS and carbide, which combined with it's natural cutting action, results in significantly longer tool life.
4. Range of Thread Milling - from 3m/m any pitch can be produced.
