We have capacity to thread roll from M3 up to M18 Dia. offering thread lengths up to 150mm in most steel forms from mild steel to various stainless grades.
We can offer cut thread alternatives on a much wider variation of materials including alluminium and brass but up to M12 dia. and again 150mm in length.
When a cut thread is specified on a customer component drawing this will normally not present the customer with a problem reflecting a need for design change of their product. However this is not always the case when a customer stipulates that a rolled thread is required. For example if the component required is an M8 "U" bolt requiring a rolled thread, this would mean to create the M8 thread we would have to manufacture the component from M7 stock to achieve the M8 thread form, or alternatively use M8 stock material and turn the diameter down for the length of thread to M7 dia. before rolling, obviously then creating a more expensive component, but rolled threads are widely recognised as the stronger alternative.
If new customers contact us to discuss their requirements prior to submitting a drawing for us to provide a quotation against we will obviously advise on the stock diameters needed to achieve the rolled thread required and try to provide the customer with all the relevant information needed to produce the component they desire.
