8 Typical Products of Thread Turning Tools And Their Applications

The scene of thread machining is complex and changeable, and tools with different characteristics are often used.

Today we will take a look at the typical products of thread cutters and their application examples.

(1) Tooth thread blade

1. Product introduction

Thread turning tool is a kind of vehicle tool with thread profile.

Simple structure and good universality.

According to the processing method of thread, thread cutting tools can be divided into thread cutting tools and thread rolling tools.

The company mainly produces thread cutting tools, including external thread turning tools, internal thread turning tools and thread comb tools.

2. Features and advantages

Universal V-shaped thread blade the same kind of blade can process threads with the same sharp angle and different pitch;

Ensure more correct tooth depth, bottom diameter and top diameter, and ensure the high strength of the thread;

The profile of the blade thread is close to or equal to the final thread profile.

3. Application examples

The product application status is shown in fig. 3-67.

1) Processed material: 45 steel (hardness 40~50HRC).

2) Processing requirements: thread M24 × 3-6g, 28mm long.

3) Machine tool: CNC lathe.

4) Tool: SER2020K16T.

5) Blade: 16ER3.00 ISO EP1425.

6) Cutting parameters: n = 1000r/min, f = 3mm/r.

7) Result: the tool life is 150 pieces / blade.

(2) Modular die – external thread machining tool

The pipe thread modular die (patent pending) of horn has two sizes of G3/4in and G1in.

It is a simple switching system composed of a basic tool holder and five independent blades.

In case of wear, only the blades in the basic tool holder need to be replaced, thus avoiding the secondary grinding work normally required.

For the previously required integral carbide cutting ring for cutting pipe threads, it weighs about 275g when the size is R3/4in.

In contrast, the total weight of cemented carbide of the five cutting blades in the new system is only 23g.

This also means that expensive cemented carbide raw materials are only used on the blade (good steel is used on the cutting edge).

The basic tool holder has the same mounting dimensions as the carbide cutting ring, so it is suitable for existing machine tools.

The safe wedge-shaped clamping unit and independent tool holder of the cutting blade are made of tool steel, with outstanding strength and damping characteristics, which can significantly improve the tool life of customers and greatly improve production efficiency.

When the tool reaches the service life limit, it is not necessary to replace the whole die, just the blade.

If one or more cutting edges are damaged, each relevant blade can be replaced separately, which can also significantly reduce the cost.

There are strict requirements for the cutting edge of the tool.

The material meets the EU 98/93EC standard.

When processing new grade brass containing a small amount of lead or without lead, the processing effect of the modular die is very satisfactory.

Modular dies of various sizes are shown in fig. 3-68.

(3) Thread machining – New Comb cutter bar

1. Product introduction

Sango supplies thread comb cutter bar.

The cutter square dimension of CER3232P1-X or CER3232P5-X comb cutter bar is 32mm × 32mm.

After installing the comb thread blade, the API thread can be processed.

CER3232P1-X is used to install a blade with a length of 15.875mm, and CER3232P5-X is used to install a blade with a length of 25mm.

The positioning accuracy of these two kinds of tool bars is very high.

Hard alloy positioning pins are used for positioning both axially and radially, and pressing plates are used for locking at the top and axially.

Using the shangao comb cutter bar and the shangao comb thread blade, API can be processed_ RD_ XXXX and API_ BUTRESS_ XXXX and GOSTOTTMXXXX threads provide great convenience for thread processing in the oil and gas industry.

What is more worth mentioning is that Yamaguchi has also launched comb cutter bars with internal and external threads of Capto interface, C6-CER/CNR-XXXX, C8-CER/CNR-XXXX;

The comb cutter head GL50-CER/CNR-XXXX, which can be replaced quickly, is also introduced.

It is believed that with the continuous updating of technology, the shangao thread comb cutter rod will have a broader application.

(4) Corothread ™  266 thread cutting tool

1. Product introduction

CoroThread ™  266 (see fig. 3-70) is the preferred high rigidity indexable blade tool for all types of thread machining.

The blade is locked on the guide rail of the tool pad, which can obtain high stability and high rigidity, so as to realize precise, consistent and high repeatability thread processing;

The blade movement is close to zero in the feed and opposite directions.

2. Product characteristics

When the blade is cutting, there is always an axial force in the feed direction.

When the cutting edge of the blade is still in contact with the workpiece near the end of the tool feeding, there will also be axial force in the opposite direction of the feed direction.

The unique interface between the blade and the blade seat eliminates the possible blade movement caused by the change of cutting force, as shown in fig. 3-71.
