Thread rolling in seconds
Chipless thread fabrication with a thread rolling head has a whole range of advantages: the finished surfaces are smooth and have increased strength; the material fibers remain unbroken. Because no chips are created, rolling naturally saves on material. Almost all standardized or special threads – from cylindrical and tapered triangular threads, through trapezoidal, round and semi-round threads to cylindrical wood threads and even buttress threads – can be rolled with a thread rolling head.
LMT Fette has pushed the technological advances of this method forward since the 1950s.
A Fette thread rolling head can be used in a wide range of positions on almost any cutting machine. According to the design, a thread rolling head can be mounted on the saddle slide, cross slide, turret or spindle head of lathes, machining centers and rolling machines.
