Automated thread forming
Threads can be found in different areas when products are connected together.
In order to gain advanced automated thread forming on a TruPunch/TruMatic machine, the tool technology was scrutinized and completed with further effective developments.
The user-friendly technology is based on a further development of the already existing thread forming tool of the tooling system TRUMPF and is available at PASS:
A magnet in the upper part of the leading spindle ensures a fast and secure fastening of the tap insert without the need for an additional tool.
The thread module is fixed flush by actuating the locking slide. Here also, no additional tools are required to enable a quick tool change.
A decisive focus was placed on the material of the leading screw: instead of "brass", "hardened steel" is now used in order to achieve a longer tool life and thus higher operational saftey.
- max. operating saftey by hardened leading screw
- easy handling for assembling and disassembling of thread modules by slide-part system
- best user friendliness by using a holding magnet for the tap inserts
- increased lifetime due to use of H-PM® tapping inserts
