Advantages of the Round Dies MS
The round dies made of high-speed steel (HSS) provide the user with many other advantages:
The gun nosed chamfer causes a controlled chip removal in the cutting direction and at the same time there is a decrease in the cutting torque. This best possible chip removal optimises the surface quality of the thread produced, prevents the chip holes from becoming clogged and results in a considerable increase in tool life when using this cutting tool.
Furthermore, the round dies from our MS series are lapped. This means that with the help of an additional step during production, the surface roughness of the die is reduced. This results in a better, easier cut during use and the thread surface is significantly better.
The Round Dies MS die is suitable for machine use to a certain extent. This is because the lapped design also enables more precise work when used mechanically. Of course, other factors (such as cutting speed, sufficient lubricant, etc.) are also important in this context.
