A factory’s tool room is where specialized devices are kept in order to carry out threading – a process of carving regular helical grooves or ridges into a material to create screw-like formations. The device used for this operation is known as a tool room threading machine.
To begin threading, it is necessary to construct a tool bit – a hunk of metal carved into a predetermined contour. This tool bit must then be fixed in the appropriate device, otherwise known as a tool holder, that will provide stability for the bit.
Determining the most suitable cutting speed comes next. This is determined by the velocity at which the tool bit rotates. The ideal cutting speed is contingent upon the material to be cut and the type of tool bit being implemented.
Once you have chosen the tool bit for the job, it’s time to decide upon the feed rate. This refers to how quickly the bit will pass through the material. The rate will depend on both the workpiece and the type of tool bit employed.
With the push of a button, the Tool Room Threading Machine springs to life; the bit grating through the material as it takes over the necessary duties. It is now time for the following step in the process.
When the tool bit comes to the conclusion of a workpiece, the tool room threading machine will shut off automatically. Additionally, it is possible to press the designated stop button to bring a halt to the machine’s operation.
The concluding step is to take out the cutter from the mounting. To commence, unfasten the holding clamp of the mounting. Subsequently, the cutter is to be dropped into a holding vessel. This piece can now cast-off or re-employed.
