The Silbertool external thread restorer tool range from Sykes-Pickavant can reform external threads, avoiding the need to replace whole components when threads are damaged.
Manchester Breakdown Services Ltd successfully restored the threads on two Renault Master axles in the first week of use, saving £850 against the cost of using salvaged parts before factoring in labour savings.
Money and time can be saved for both the repairer and the vehicle owner.
The Silbertool can virtually eliminate the need for the vehicle to be off the road for long periods waiting for parts, with same-day repairs.
Silbertool uses non-cutting external thread reform technology to repair the thread by forming it back to its original shape.
Preserving the original form of the thread is crucial for the safety of the mechanical components as removing material can prove dangerous by potentially weakening the thread.
Sykes-Pickavant claim the process leaves the thread nearly 40 per cent harder than cutting.
All types of thread are supported including metric, fine and imperial from M5 – M110 with the use of thread specific roller packs which are available to purchase separately.
The largest tool (01431100) is particularly good for working on truck axles due.
