The GFG-WFE shell-type thread milling cutter from JBO is suited for difficult-to-machine materials and large-batch production applications. Higher cutting speeds and feeds shorten machining time, while the number of cutting edges increases tool life. The cutter’s rugged construction offers a higher-grade thread surface texture. According to the company, the cutter is suitable for nearly any thread or profile, and it is advantageous for long-run production of steel components. Also, the inserts can be reground several times.

  • Rigid Tapping--Sometimes You Need A Little Float

    One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
