Threading Tools

This category includes systems that create screw threads in a workpiece. Threading is either performed by subtractive methods (thread cutting), deformative or transformative methods (rolling, casting, and molding), or additive methods (3D printing, etc.). Common subtractive threading tools are taps and dies, which incorporate longitudinal flutes to cut screw threads within a hole or nut. Taps are used to cut or form the female portion of a threaded pair, dies form the male portion. Taps and dies are typically formed from high-speed steel or carbon tool steel.
