A lathe is a machine for manipulating objects in order to construct a wide range of end-products. It rotates a workpiece on a single axis, performing cutting, sanding, knurling, drilling and deformation operations. Additionally, many lathes are equipped to carry out threading; the process in which a single-point tool is fed into the surface of the workpiece, forming a helical groove of an established depth, width and pitch.
A variety of lathe threading tool holders are available, crafted to accommodate particular threading operations. Common constructions consist of:
Tool holders used for external threading, commonly known as ‘chucking’ holders, are a common piece of industrial equipment.
Tool holders crafted as boring bars are employed to shape inner threads.
Threads can be cut onto pipes or tubing with the help of threading die tool holders, designed specifically for this application. These holders enable professionals to easily manipulate material so that smooth, accurate threads are created.
– For the task of tapered expansion of the external diameter of any object, Taper Attachment Tool Holders are the go-to instrument.
– The knurling tool holder is an indispensable device for meliorating the texture of a workpiece’s exterior by engraving attractive patterns into it.
When finding the right lathe threading tool holder for your application, weigh carefully factors such as the thread type being cut, the type of material in the workpiece, the depth of its thread, the required finish, and the lathe’s speed.
