Thread Grinding

Threads are ground by the cutting contact between a rotating workpiece and a rotating grinding wheel. Thread grinding is used when the hardness of the material makes it difficult or impractical to thread with normal thread cutting methods. Its accuracy also makes thread grinding essential for precision work, such as taps and thread gages.

Grinding of threads frequently is specified for parts subject to high stress parts subject to fatigue, including aircraft, tank, gun, and motor parts. KEYWORDS for this process: ceramics, beryllia, glass
