Low Force Knurling


When a wide knurling pattern needs to be applied from the cross slide, especially if it's a straight knurl, the use of a LOW FORCE style knurling die CAN be the difference between success and failure. In recent years Accu Trak has been applying this relatively new technology routinely to solve difficult knurling jobs. The biggest reason for its success is based on the theory that: For good tracking one needs good penetration on the first revolution. With wide dies the forces needed to sink the die into the workpiece often exceeds the capabilities of the machine. But with LOW FORCE design the amount of knurl surface area in contact with the part has been reduced allowing for higher pressures and therefore better penetration.
