Bihler Thread Forming Machines 

Thread tapping is a delicate process. Producing the right size takes precision and care, and tapping threads manually takes time. You can ensure accuracy and save time by implementing an automated thread forming solution. 

Bihler thread forming machines are powerful devices that automate the process. Our machines use powerful servo motors and compressed air to rotate a tapping tool with enough torque to quickly cut threads into a substrate. The machines are compatible with tools for metric and imperial fasteners ranging from M2 to M20 in diameter. 

Bihler automatic thread tapping solutions enhance productivity through automation technology. The VariControl VC 1 console enables precise programming for torque, form, size and speed. You can program a thread forming process that threads up to 260 holes per minute. 

GSE K and KS Thread Forming Machines 

At Bihler of America, we offer two lines of thread forming machines — GSE K and GSE KS. The GSE K machine features a flat design compatible with presses and ideal for low tool installation heights. The GSE KS line features narrow machines that conform to crowded manufacturing environments. Each version includes water cooling systems, central lubrication systems, programmable speeds and rapid retooling systems. You can use either option horizontally or vertically. 

Choose the GSE K or GSE KS model offering the thread diameter range you need: 

  • K1: M2-M6
  • K2: M5-M12
  • K3: M10-M20
  • KS1: M2-M6
  • KS2: M5-M10
