What are Threading Dies?

Threading dies are tools use to cut a male thread on the outside of rods and bars. Moreover, threading die provides precision in cutting and increase the life of a material.

These dies are made up of tempered and hardened steel which are fixed in a stock.

Threading dies are either use for thread cutting or thread forming. Thread cutting can either be internal or external.

These dies use rolled threads that have greater strength than a cut thread. Moreover, it requires more energy to roll a thread rather than cutting a thread.

Types of Threading Dies

There are three main types of threading dies circular dies, two-piece adjustable dies and die nut which is discussed in detail below.

Circular Dies

These dies use for producing full threads with a single operation. However, this die does not permit desirable adjustments of the screws over the stock.

In circular dies, the threads are tapered on the side to facilitate the comfortable start. The die is assembled correctly by making the shoulder of the stock socket at the top.

Moreover, the thread is tapered at the bottom. Mainly these type of die used for cutting smaller thread types.

Die Nut

In appearance die nut is the same as a circular or hexagonal nut. Moreover, Die nut is available in all size of the standard threads.

The main function of die nut is not to cut threads but to sharpen an existing thread. Die nut is run over an existing thread which might be blunted due to overuse.

These threads are useful for cleaning, restoring and easing out damaged threads on fixed studs. Die nuts can be easily operated by using a set spanner or ordinary spanner.
