With the advent of Covid-19 the
importance of a “Safe Port” has become a global objective. As a
supplier to both big and small businesses our commitment is to continue
“business as usual” within the circumstances surrounding us. Our
supply from Italian manufacturers is limited due to the situation in their
country. Please keep our Italian friends
in your thoughts and prayers.
However, most our suppliers are
maintaining operations and many of our customers and suppliers are considered
“Essential Businesses” and will continue in operation. These Many parts of our country are still
operating and require the same technical resources they were accustomed to
during normal times.
We have added protection to our

Fette thread rolling tools have versatility and can be
applied to rolling other forms besides external threads. Knurling and swaging
applications are easily done on axial, tangential and radial tools with great
success. Axial heads are especially successful at rolling straight form, left
hand helical, right hand helical and diamond knurl patterns.
The displacement of material forming the knurl pattern
exhibits no sharpness in the formed knurl. This is especially important
when handling knurled instruments wearing delicate gloves. Very fine to very
course patterns are achievable and tooling set up is extremely easy. The
application of rolling speeds, like threading, makes cycle times extremely
short. This makes the tool application very cost effective.
Swaging is also easily adaptable and the axial approach to
swaging yields consistent product quality hard to achieve with a side approach
swaging tool. Distortion is nonexistent and swage roll life is extremely high.
Symmetrical and step style swage forms can be accomplished. Form coining of
nose radiuses is also done frequently. The tools are not limited to straight
If your current tool selection includes thread rolling heads you may not have known that they have applications beyond male threads. Contact us with your Knurling and Swaging applications. We can identify your current tooling and determine if it’s applicable. We can also quote a new application with all the necessary tooling.
