An Overview of the Cridan Threading Machine Process

Cridan threading lathes are highly specialized pieces of traditional metalworking equipment. Automatically clocked with a pick-off gear and cam system, these fully mechanical machines accurately grind the surface of cylindrical metal parts while automatically cutting a thread into the workpiece.

Though Vescio has far more advanced, precision-capable CNC grinding and threading machines at our disposal, our Cridan lathes are still a practical and cost-efficient solution for many specialized threading applications.

Vescio Manufacturing is one of the industry’s most experienced modern machine shops in the utilization of traditional Cridan threading lathes. A number of our head machinists bring over 40 years of Cridan machining expertise to the table, while simultaneously being some of the most skilled and capable CNC machinists in the industry.
