Threading Method

Threading machining is very common in metalwork, We will talk with you about this topic in series articles

Thread forms

The most common thread forms and profiles are show:
General threads – Good balance between load bearing capacity and volume of material
Pipe threads – Ability to bear loads, able to form leak proof connections (threads are often conical)
Food and Fire – Same as Pipe threads but round for easy cleaning for food industry with easily repeated connecting/dis-connecting for fire
Aerospace – High precision and minimized risk for stress concentration and breakage
Oil and Gas – extreme load bearing and leak proof requirements within limitations of wall thickness (weight) of pipe
Motion – Symmetrical form with large contact surfaces for a sturdy form
