Machines used for thread machining
are very similar to bench drilling machines
. The device with the motor and the thread cutter is fixed onto a stud frame that can be lowered mechanically, pneumatically or hydraulically. Thereby, the thread is placed into the already mass produced holes. Combined drilling and thread machines are particularly efficient. Machines used for thread machining
are applied in the mass production of small parts, where a thread needs to be incorporated. The workpieces are continually placed underneath the machine using a conveyor belt, and then they are fixed in position and processed. These machines allow for large numbers of products to be processed quickly.
