Wire Threads

Threads are either cut or rolled.

Cut Threads are produced by removing material (cutting) from the outer surface of the wire that is the nominal diameter of the desired thread, leaving behind the thread shape.

Rolled Threads are formed by pressing a thread pattern into the wire causing material to flow down to create the root of the thread and up to form the crest of the thread. The wire diameter is the thread's pitch diameter. No material is removed in this process.

Advantages of Wire Forms with Rolled Threads

The rolled thread is more cost efficient in a number of ways.

  • Less Material - the wire's diameter is less than a cut thread part therefore it weighs and costs less.
  • High Volume Production - roll threading is faster and less labor intensive.
  • Stronger Threads - rolled threads are stronger than cut threads because of mechanical work hardening and grain orientation on the rolled thread component.
