Thread cutting (threading) is a method to create helical patterns on a cylindrical or conical object to mate it with other parts. The friction is enough to prevent a rotational movement. Threaded components are also commonly used to convert a linear movement to rotation, or vice versa.
Probably, the most common threaded components are screws and nuts, but threads are found on many components. Most threads are manufactured according to metric or imperial standards. This is very practical since there is a variety of specifications to threads. Some of them are minor and major diameter, the thread's angle, the number of thread at start, length between threads, the number of threads when it is rotated 360 degrees, left or right- or left-handed threads and so on.
Most workshops can make threads. Threads can be made in thread rolling machines, which is suitable for high volumes and threads with a small diameter. Another way the thread is cut, which is done in lathes, milling machines or CNC centers, typically for small series or large diameters.
Two cutting tools are normally used for thread cutting; taps and dies. Dies creates external threads, and taps are for internal threads.
Cutting the external threads is known as threading or in some cases chasing, meanwhile cutting internal threads is called tapping.
Post project to suppliers with Thread Cutting capabilities
This £750,000-spending company is looking for an approved supplier to undertake thread cutting of blank pivot bushes. These will be free-issued to the selected vendor in a batch of 30 off. The client would ideally like to receive delivery of the completed items within August 2018, making it a great opportunity to fill immediate capacity. Moving forward, repeat orders will be placed and therefore, this enquiry should not be missed by those who are looking to supplement their long-term customer portfolio.
With a £13,000 annual spend on subcontract machining services, the client is a manufacturer of fasteners that is looking for a supplier to produce large quantities of the attached connecting stud. They are looking for quotes in numerous material options and would like to speak with interested companies as soon as possible.
