Frequently Asked Questions

Question What do M&W require with your order for thread rolling dies?
Answer
The fastener type and thread profile together with the diameter and pitch. The point configuration (if any) and length of screw. The rolling machine and the face width to be used (and the die dimensions if not using a standard machine). Any special requirements and the fastener application (e.g. if it is for aerospace you will probably need Radius Run Out chamfer). The number of sets of dies required. Please also provide your Purchase Order Number.
Question
What type of steel do M&W recommend for rolling stainless steel blanks or rolling hardened products?
Answer
M&W usually recommend M42 or M2 with nitride coating for improved die life. M&W have developed D2-GLX which combines the economies of D2 steel with the improved tool life of special heat treatment and manufacturing processes.
Question
What is the standard delivery time?
Answer
Many dies are shipped 'ex stock'. Most standard items are shipped in 4 weeks. Semi-special items are shipped within 6 weeks. By arrangement M&W can hold special stock tailored for you. On occasions we can produce finished dies, from raw material to shipping, in 2 to 3 days.
