The thread former has proven a highly effective tool for creating internal threads in all ductile materials. Through targeted further development of the forming edge geometry and the coating, all ductile materials, including stainless steels, can be machined on any machining centre using a 5% emulsion. Thread formers from the Walter Prototyp competence brand can be used to create threads that offer both dynamic strength and dimensional accuracy.

Facts and advantages:

  • non-chipping machining
  • better static and dynamic thread characteristics
  • produce both blind and through hole threads with a single tool
  • maximum precision and cost efficiency
  • stable tool design, as no flutes are required
