A threading tool is used for screw cutting or cutting threads on the inside and outside diameters of components or work pieces. Thread forming and thread rolling are processes that are used to form screw threads, with the former used to create internal threads and the latter used to create external threads. In both processes, threads are formed into a blank by pressing a shaped die against the blank.
A wide range of methods are used to create screw threads. Key factors that influence the type of method used are: the degree of precision needed, available equipment and time and money constraints. Generally, there are thread-generating processes that are suitable for tool room-made parts, and some specific processes are suitable for mass-produced parts.
Threading tools are manufactured on precision machines. They are used on engine lathes, vertical lathes, chuckers, and other lathes. Carbide tips are brazed on threading tools and the cutting edges are ground on the tips.
