Product Portfolio
  • Knurling wheels

  • The zeus product programme for knurling wheels includes all types of knurling wheels for form and cut knurling applications. In addition to standard forms according to the DIN 403, we offer special profiles and customized knurling wheels. Maximum precision and the use of tool life increasing product features are the decisive product characteristics of a zeus premium knurling wheel. For special application, we design an individual knurling wheel according to your requirements.

    zeus premium - powder metal for increased tool life

    As your tool supplier for premium products we focus on product features that ensure maximum tool life, in particular for hard to machine materials. zeus standard wheels are therefore made of powder metal. This material is characterised by its high warm hardness, high wear resistance and its increased ability to work under pressure. Apart from the standard PM types, we manufacture knurling wheels made of High Speed Automatic Steel and Carbide on demand.
      • Form knurling wheels - with chamfer

      • General information - Knurling wheels with chamfer

        zeus knurling wheels for form knurling have a standard chamfer of 45°. The chamfer optimizes the forming process and thus avoids tooth breakage. Our extensive standard programme of knurling wheels for form knurling is listed in the index below.

        Further to the standard version made of powder metal all mentioned products are also available in HSS and carbide on request. Any pitches, even special sizes which are not listed in our standard portfolio, are manufactured on request according to our customers' specifications.

        General information - points down

        Knurling wheels for form knurling with points down are applied for plunge knurling on our form knurling tool series RD1. On the work piece they produce the corresponding counter according to DIN 82. zeus knurling wheels for form knurling have a standard chamfer of 45°. The chamfer improves the forming process and thus avoids tooth breakage.

        Further to the standard version made of powder metal all mentioned products are also available in HSS. Any pitches, even special ones which are not listed in our standard portfolio, are manufactured on request according to our customers' specifications.
      • Cut knurling wheels - without chamfer

      • zeus Knurling wheels for cut knurling - swarf removal

      • Burnishing rolls

      • zeus rolls for burnishing surfaces are mainly used for roller-burnishing or supporting round material during machining on a lathe. They can be applied in a standard zeus form knurling tool. If required, a customer specific bearing system can be developed and produced. These tool systems are suitable for processing cylindrical work pieces, bores, plane sides, conical work pieces and also convex and concave outlines.

        Advantages:
        • Burnished work pieces show less friction and increased corrosion resistance
        • Subsequent-treatments like grinding, honing or lapping can be easily replaced through roller-burnishing processes
        • When used as a supportive roll, the bearing axis and clamping devices are less stressed, and the pressure on the work piece is minimized

        Characteristics:
        • Material: 1.3343 HSS
        • Hardness: 61-63 HRC
      • After - treatment

      • After - treatment for an increased tool life

        With an optimal surface finish that is adjusted to the material processed, a substantial increase in tool life can be realized. The optimal after-treatment depends in all cases on the application itself (knurling technique applied, material processed, knurling wheel dimension, feed and speed rate, etc.). The following options are available:

        POLISHED KNURLING WHEELS
        For adhesive materials that require an optimal chip-flow, we recommend fine-polished knurling wheels. zeus® knurling wheels are polished in-house with a special technique that allows a highly-precise rounding of the edges and excellent surface smoothing. The precise edge rounding of the tooth flanks enhances the edge stability and prevents built-up edges. Premature breakage of the knurling wheels´ teeth can thus be prevented. Moreover, polished knurling wheels are a cost-effective alternative to ground carbide knurling wheels, that are commonly used for adhesive materials.

        HEAT TREATMENT - TENIFER®-TREATMENT (NITRIDING)
        TENIFER®-treatment in salt-bath plants is applied for increasing the knurling wheels´ wear resistance and endurance strength. This nitrocarburizing treatment boosts the materials´ case hardness.

        SURFACE TREATMENT - PVD COATINGS
        Further possibilities to increase tool life is to apply an application specific PVD coating. As a standard we can offer TiN, TiCN, TiAlN, TiAlCN, which are especially suitable for cut knurling applications.
        The ideal after-treatment should always be determined by a field experiment, considering the application parameters, i.e material processed, feed and speed rates, knurling technique, etc.

                                        With the MRS1 series the marking is achieved by a partial revolution of the marking roll. After unwinding of the text, the tool is retracted and returns to the start position. Thus, the marking of different work piece diameters is possible. The use of exchangeable segments increases the flexibility as the text can be varied according to the requested application. Typical applications are the marking of dates or changing batch numbers on the work piece.

                                            Marking Techniques
                                            • For the marking of turned-parts, two techniques can be distinguished.

                                            Continuous roll marking
                                            • With the continuous roll marking system, the parts are marked by several revolutions of the marking roll. The marking roll (Marking roll No. 40) is bound to a specific workpiece diameter.

                                            Spring return marking
                                            • Alternatively, the spring return marking system can be applied. With this technique, the marking is achieved by a partial revolution of the marking roll. After unwinding of the text, the tool is retracted by an integrated spring and returns to the start position. With this system, different workpiece diameters can be marked (Marking roll No. 41 / 42).
