Product designers or engineers who require fasteners or threaded parts have a new resource to help reduce production costs and improve quality thanks to Vallorbs Jewel Company. Vallorbs’ Guide to Threads Tip Sheet provides designers with answers to some of the questions they may have about identifying the need for rolled vs. cut threads.
Many designers do not specify rolled vs. cut threads when submitting design specs, even though in some instances, the difference in the end products is significant. Rolled threads are often stronger and more reliable than cut threads. This tip sheet is intended to guide product designers in choosing the best threading method for their application.
“We have identified a number of ways product designers can improve strength, accuracy, and cost of their threaded parts,” said Ken Rinier, General Manager at Vallorbs. “With the goal of improved quality and cost-containment, we hope to assist in addressing the issues of fatigue-related failure, material selection, and required tolerances when specifying threaded parts for an application.”
Product designers and engineers in a range of industries, such as aerospace, nuclear, and medical, are encouraged to download the Guide to Threads Tip Sheet. Choosing the best threading method for a part can help reduce production costs and improve strength and product performance.
