Thread quality control is becoming a widespread necessity in manufacturing to guarantee
the geometry of the resulting screws on the workpiece due to the high industrial costs. Besides, the
industrial inspection is manual provoking high rates of manufacturing delays. Therefore, the aim of
this paper consists of developing a statistical quality control approach acquiring the data (torque
signal) coming from the spindle drive for assessing thread quality using different coatings. The
system shows a red light when the tap wear is critical before machining in unacceptable screw threads.
Therefore, the application could reduce these high industrial costs because it can work self-governance.
