    TIP SHEET | Consistent Thread Geometry Tip Sheet

    Did you know that certain machining methods compromise thread consistency? Traditional thread cutting can create inaccuracies and slow production. Thread rolling is a superior method; hardened steel dies used to roll threads do not have sharpened edges. Rolling is continuous, so geometry remains the same throughout production.
