Threading

When demands are high

Threading gives us a chance to show off our creative side. Our aspirations form the basis of pioneering developments, such as bore thread milling cutters, which combine continuous drilling, counterboring and thread milling in a single tool. These are just two of the numerous innovations that we have provided to rise to the challenges our customers have issued us and make their manufacturing processes significantly more dynamic. For only those who know what lies ahead can step up their demands on threading.

Passion for threading

From the very beginning, we have been continually setting new standards in threading. Our thread milling cutters feature a relatively large core cross section and narrow, geometrically optimised flutes. These characteristics provide effective chip formation and low cutting pressures during thread milling. Experience our expertise for yourself on our YouTube channel.

Thread milling cutters

In thread milling, the thread is produced by doing a helical interpolation. The cutting process enables the production of threads from a nominal diameter of 1 mm (single profile), with multi-profile from M2. Some tools are also equipped with countersinkers and/or face cutters.

Drill thread milling cutter

Revolutionary thread manufacture in perfect form, made possible by CNC technology. With a combination bore thread milling tool, the bore, countersink and internal thread is produced  in one pass!As standard we offer two versions: our   KOMET   JEL®   BGF  drill thread milling tool with countersink on the shank side for defined thread lengths of 1.5×D | 2×D | 2.5×D and 3×D. For different thread lengths our   KOMET   JEL®   UBGF  universal drill thread milling tool with countersink on the shank and face side should be used. The fine grain carbide grades used and also the coatings guarantee a long tool life.

Roll form taps

In contrast to thread cutting, no chips are produced when threads are made using thread formers. Materials with a breaking elongation >5 % and a tensile strength <1000 N/mm² are suitable for when forming threads. Formed threads have a smoother surface and greater tensile strength under dynamic stress than cut threads. Solid carbide thread formers have a tool life that is up to 20 times longer than those made of HSS-E. The patented thread former made of HSS-E with brazed carbide inserts are particularly well suited for use on transfer lines. The flexible base body compensates for small alignment errors, whilst the carbide achieves the longest tool life at the cutting point. Limitations: Thin-walled components with a wall thickness <2x lead cannot be formed.

KOMET®  custom tools


If you’re looking for solutions, we can provide results. Developing customer-specific solutions is one of the KOMET GROUP's main areas of expertise. It is often impossible to perform machining operations using standard tools owing to geometry and tolerance requirements as well as the desire to combine several machining steps in a single tool. Project management at the KOMET GROUP is setting new standards in this regard in the development of custom special tools.
