Thread Rolling process is used for making external threads.

A die, which is a hardened tool with the thread profile, is pressed on to a rotating workpiece. As the force is gradually increased, the thread profile is transferred to the workpiece. This process produces screws with greater strength than machined threads due to the cold working, as well as better material yield.
