Avoid Flaking and Damage to Your Thread Roll Applications
Use our Minimum Wall Thickness Chart when thread rolling thin-walled parts.
Minimum wall thickness is typically a function of the nominal thread diameter and the thread pitch.
Any distortion can not only cause flaking and non-uniform geometry — but can also collapse and damage the part during thread rolling.
Because of this, it is critical to maintain the wall thickness standards outlined in our Minimum Wall Thickness Chart. The chart includes:
- A diagram illustrating blank diameter and wall thickness
- Wall thicknesses using derived equations (both Standard and Metric)
- Attachments to use for thin-walled parts
