The intricate intricacies of cutting threads into a workpiece require the precision of a kennametal threading tool holder. This device is equipped with a range of different components, each of which provide an assurance of accuracy. The drill chuck is one such example, allowing for a drill bit to be held in place while drilling is undertaken. Furthermore, taps and dies, reamers, and end mills are other kennametal threading tool holder components which can be employed to maximize the effectiveness of the task at hand.
Kennametal threading tool holders come in two materials: carbon steel and high-speed steel. Carbon steel models cost less, but they lack durability. High-speed steel is pricier but will endure extended use and are able to resist breakage or wear out quickly.
To accommodate for varied cutting tool sizes, Kennametal threading tool holders come in three dimensions: 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch, and 1/2 inch. When picking out the proper holder, the size of the holder should match that of the cutting bit it’s supporting—for instance, a 1/4-inch threading tool and a 1/4-inch drill bit would pair perfectly.
Hardware stores and online retailers carry sets of Kennametal threading tool holders, which typically includes a drill chuck, a tap, a die, and an end mill. Alternatively, those looking for these tools can also opt to purchase them separately.
