The challenge: cutting external threads in brass

Brass is a copper-zinc alloy that has been used in crafts for thousands of years and is easily recognized by its brownish to reddish color. There are various types of brass, which differ primarily in the amount of zinc they contain. Due to its special properties, brass has maintained a place in the ranking of commonly used materials to this day. Thanks to its beautiful appearance, reminiscent of gold, it is used for decorative elements or fittings and is also a classic starting material for wind instruments. Brass is amagnetic, has good electrical conductivity and shows mechanical stability. For this reason, brass is also found in antennas or the pins of plug connections, among other things. Brass is also still often used in the sanitary sector due to its good corrosion resistance. So in all these areas it may happen that you need a thread cutting die for brass.

And you should not do without such a special thread cutting die for brass, because the material is not easy to handle. Making external threads in brass produces very fine chips and can contribute to the formation of a so-called built-up edge. In this case, the smallest material deposits accumulate on the rake faces and condense to form a second cutting edge, which then admittedly no longer delivers the desired results. With a thread cutting die for brass, you are on the safe side and can enjoy perfectly cut external threads even with this tricky material.

The solution: thread cutting dies for brass from BAER

With the BAER-cutting irons for brass, nothing can go wrong when machining the copper-zinc alloy. The geometry of the cutting irons for brass was specially developed for machining this material and can easily handle the special features of the material. For example, the cutting studs are particularly narrow, which reduces friction and prevents the fine chip from being picked up again. This effect is supported by the peel cut, which further improves chip removal. The special cutting angle prevents overlapping and ensures a beautifully formed result.
