Thread milling is a method of cutting screw threads with a milling cutter in a thread mill. This article discusses the operational procedures of thread milling machines, namely, universal thread mills, production thread mills, planetary thread mills, and numerical control machines. It describes the classification of thread milling cutters, such as single-form cutters and multiple-form cutters. The article reviews the speeds and feeds for thread milling, which depend on a number of variables, such as the material being milled, tool material, and rigidity of the machine and workpiece. It tabulates the cutting speeds for climb and conventional milling.
