Superior Die Set will showcase its Threadformer family of unscrewing devices designed for high-production runs with minimal maintanence. The units are capable of unscrewing thread diameters ranging from 10-32 to 80 mm and thread lengths ranging to 70 mm with the standard units. A hydraulic motor and a fixed mechanical dead stop enable core positioning accuracy in a compact package, the company states. The flexible range of unscrewing units consists of three primary models all available in single or twin core variants, including a right-angle unit capable of internal core cooling. The Threadformer can be adapted to most threaded core applications requiring lower cavitation. The threaded core can also be provided along with the unit.
