    Gewindeschneidmaschinen

    Pneumatische und Elektrische Gewindeschneidmaschinen | Laser Graviermaschinen und Gewindeschneidmaschinen

    There is no implication of internal threading, the same word is used for machines that cut external threads on steel pipes, for example.

    German to English is easy because they "shrink wrap" all the important parts of an assembly into the same bag:

    gewinde
    schneid
    maschinen

    thread
    cutting
    machinery

    English to German is harder because we as loose parts "assembly required" do ship... and don't even provide a proper BOM or assembly drawing.

    You thought German made-up-9-yard long words were a problem?

    Packaged "solution" no further assembly required, batteries even included, rather.

    Downside? Got it in one. You have to be looking at it from THEIR "side"

    Would you have wanted your Benz delivered as loose parts?

    What is the ENGLISH "shorter version" or "slang" term for "thread cutting machine".

    "Power tapper?" Surely saves one whole word. But loses precise context as the price of it. "Tapper" even more so.

    Betcha Bill "Bojangles" Robinson could whup a power tapper's mechanized ass even faster than John Henry beat that steam hammer down!

    I'd say Gewindeschneidmaschine. An "n" on the end makes it plural.

    You might even try Innengewindeschneidmaschine. For Internal tapping machine - that gives me hits in my search engine of choice. Like Thermite says: string together the components into a single word.

    Good luck,

    Hans

    And a tapping machine operator with a PhD would be properly addressed as

    Herr Doctor Gewindeschneidmaschinenbedenier

    Meahh... not a "PhD" in it, but how about:

    Herr Promotion Diplom Ingenieur Gewindeschneidmaschinenbedenier

    Daily Driver name? "Der schnellerschneider"? Or just "twisty Hans"?

    Either way? Fer gawds sake.. don't let 'im get aholt of the keys to the company truck!!!

    I do not mean to be too sticklish, but in german there is a destinction for thread cutting (meaning external) and thread boring (internal).

    So a tapping machine would be Thread-Boring-Machine = Gewinde-bohr-maschine. Gewindebohrmaschine.

    This is not always used correctly though by everyone.

    That's not "sticklish", Martin.

    That's valuable information!
