Conversions

A large number of our customers ask us for thread roll conversions where we take a basic thread cutting machine and convert it to thread roll components. This is achieved by removing the existing Diehead and retrofitting a FETTE or ALCO thread rolling head.
We make the necessary adjustments to the transmission and power as it requires much more torque to displace material rather than cut it, rolling also requires significantly more speed which can be an advantage to high volume production.
Popular machines include M38.1 Jackleg threaders, M60.3 Acrow Prop and machines to thread roll large bolts which have been ‘skin turned’ to effective diameter. Examples of such machines can be viewed on the stock page.
