Change the shank, not the thread-rolling head. A quick-change shank allows a single LMT-Fete axial thread-rolling head to go from installation in a screw machine to a CNC lathe and to a CNC machining center. What's more, shank change-over doesn't require adaptors.

These thread-rolling head shanks are compatible with VDI, HSK, CAT-V and straight shanks (metric or inch versions). Other shank options are available upon request. For work on a multitude of machines, the rolling head can be equipped with a designated shank or a single shank can be provided for several rolling heads. Maintenance on this head requires only shark or clutch replacement.
