What are threading tools?

Thread tool is a metalcutting tool used to form a thread on a part. Threading tools include taps, threading dies etc For example, we offer a variety of hand and machine taps that are thread processing tools, in addition to thread cutting, GSR also offer thread repair tool and hole making tool.

What are the different types of threads?

Threads and connections are divided into seven main types M/MF, UNC/UNF, BSW/BSF, NPT/NPTF, BSPP (BSP, parallel)/BSPT (BSP, tapered).

Thread depth of cut calculation formula: 0.54*pitch. The depth of entry for turning a 2mm pitch triangular thread is approximately 1.08mm, and it is difficult to have an accurate formula for all applications due to the radius of the turning tool tip, thread accuracy, and outside diameter error. Generally, an empirical formula is used as a reference, and after approximately machining to the depth, other measurements are used to determine the amount of margin to continue machining.
