Thread turning

Thread turning is a special turning process.In thread turning a distinction is made between three different forms of presentation; the use of these depends on the thread pitch, the machine tool, the work-piece material and the cutting edge geometry.

In the case of large threads, the tool must traverse the same track several times, penetrating deeper each time. The full depth of cut is therefore divided into several smaller cuts, thus preventing an overload on the sensitive tip of the thread profile of the cutting edge.

In order to ensure profile accuracy, the helix angle of the thread must coincide as far as possible with the angle of inclination of the threaded plate.
