Threading Dies – for a perfect external thread

BAER cutting tools are available in various forms for different materials with a strength of up to 1300 N/mm². Basically, this cutting tool is cylindrical and has - depending on the size - three or more cutting edges inside. The holes between the cutting edges take up the chips, roll them and carry them away. The hexagonal cutting die is particularly advantageous for repairs, as it can be operated with a wrenches, allowing you to reach inaccessible places more easily.

Showing the teeth

The die has outer and inner teeth. The flattened outer teeth facilitate the chamfer, reduce wear and increase the tool life. Each tooth takes a chip of the same width when cutting. The inner teeth have no cutting function: in the cut part of the thread, they serve as straight guides. It is important that you set the tool straight and lubricate it with cutting oil or cutting paste.

The symmetrical design allows cutting in both axial directions. With screws you fix the die in a suitable die holder waht prevents it from twisting during use. The material from which cutting irons are usually made is high-performance high-speed steel HSS or HSSE.

Advantages of the die on a view

  • Small space requirement
  • Adjustment without effort
  • Use on single and multi-spindle machines
  • Simple tool set-up
  • Use from both sides

Excellent quality at a good price. That is BAER.

Round dies for normal applications

For normal use, BAER offers you round external cutting dies for general applications in numerous sizes. Let yourself be convinced by the perfect condition of this tool and the strong price-performance ratio.

Round dies for brass

Brass is fussy when it comes to cutting. When using normal round dies, there is a risk of built-up edge. Therefore, these BAER external dies are specially designed for brass. The quality tools ensures optimum chip removal with the spiral entry in combination with the lapped and particularly smooth surface.

Hexagonal cutting dies

Whether for cutting new threads or for repairing and recutting damaged threads - here the BAER hexagonal die nut is the tool of choice. Even when threads have to be cut in places that are difficult to reach, the hexagonal die finds its application.

Round dies for stainless steels

You want to machine rust-resistant stainless steel? The geometry of these BAER round dies is specially designed for this application. This cutting die scores with additional power for all cases of hardness. This is ensured by an improved surface finish, the peel cut and the base material HSSE.

Round dies with undersize

If materials are still treated after thread cutting, the cut thread must be smaller. With the undersize tolerance 6e, a precisely fitting thread with the standard tolerance 6g is produced after surface or heat treatment. Here, too, BAER quality convinces with an outstanding price-performance ratio.

Custom-made cutting dies

In the BAER range we have cutting dies that have a perfect composition for the machining of special nickel alloys. They are real professionals in their profession. The coating ensures that the sliding properties as well as the surface hardness are increased. This  leads to a longer tool life time and higher cutting performance. We are happy to manufacture dies according to your individual ideas in unusual designs, thread dimensions or for special applications. Please contact us.
