Thread Whirling: A Site For Your Eyes

I received an e-mail recently from Scott Laprade of Genevieve Swiss offering to share his company’s thread whirling expertise online—no salesman will call. Scott has put together a convenient archive of frequently asked questions about thread whirling and links to third party sources for additional information—even a couple of articles published in Production Machining and Modern Machine Shop.

 

How many of you perform thread whirling operations in your shop? Go ahead, raise your hands. Now, how many of you have heard of thread whirling and wondered if it might be worth looking into?

I received an e-mail recently from Scott Laprade of Genevieve Swiss offering to share his company’s thread whirling expertise online—no salesman will call.

I am brining this to your attention because times are tough and you need to tap any and all resources available to help increase productivity and lower manufacturing costs. Thread whirling has a proven track record of accomplishing these goals.

Many shops are using this process to generate threads, especially in the production of medical parts, because it is quick, relatively easy and makes good threads. Unfortunately, many of those same shops protect their process knowledge like it was the formula for Coke.

Without giving up any customer secrets, Genevieve’s post presents a useful Q&A about thread whirling and who might benefit from using it. Moreover, the company explains the process verbally and graphically on its site and through links to other resources. Please take a minute to look at this link: www.genswiss.com/whirlinfo.htm.
