Threading tools

Manufacturing precise threads Threading tools Increasing competitive constraints force the manufacturer to continually make cost savings. Constantly increasing demands with respect to component quality and process reliability as well as high-alloy tool steels continuously create new challenges for all of the components of the machining process.

Threading tools from the competence brand Walter Prototyp stand for innovation, cost reduction and an increase in productivity and competitive edge. Our comprehensive range of catalogue products offers you the right tool for any machining method or process.

HSS-E (-PM) and solid carbide taps, thread formers as well as thread milling cutters and indexable inserts. From above size M1, these tools are available as part of the standard range.

Our Walter Prototyp tools offer a very high level of process reliability, even with deep blind-hole and through-hole threads, as well as an excellent thread surface and optimum machine utilisation.

Their flexible range of applications and ISO labelling prevent the tools from being mixed up.​

The cutting geometry and the larger cutting diameter mean that all forming edges of the Protodyn® (S) Plus thread former participate equally in the forming process. This results in even wear behaviour, improved running-in behaviour and significantly longer tool life.

Further advantages of our thread formers include: Chip removal dispensed with as a result of cold working, significantly less roughness in the flanks than with thread cutting, and a better thread surface. Cold work hardening of the thread flanks and in the root of the thread result in approximately 20% greater pull-out strength under static load. The greater machining reliability thanks to incredibly stable tools is due to the large core cross section and no additional flutes.
