June 17, 2014 - Offered in blind hole and through hole designs for thread lengths up to 3 x D,  Z-Taps are suited for stainless steels, high strength alloys, tool steels, and cast steels <=30 Rc. Units have advanced chamfer geometry and rake/flute form. GLT-1 multi-layered coating, offering heat resistance and outer anti-friction layer, produces controllable chip formation that is released smoothly for efficient chip removal. Sizes from No. 4 to ¾ in. are available in UNC, UNF, and Metric Fine and Coarse.

Taps feature Advanced Geometry and New GLT-1 Multi-layered Coating

WEST BOYLSTON, MA U.S.A.  – Today, Emuge Corp. ( announced they are introducing a new tap program "Z-Taps", an extensive line of taps featuring design and engineering that make them ideal for stainless steels, high strength alloys, tool steels and cast steels <=30Rc. (

Emuge Z-Taps are designed with an advanced chamfer geometry and rake / flute form.  GLT-1, a newly developed multi-layered coating, produces a consistent, controllable chip formation that is released smoothly for fast and efficient chip removal.  GLT-1 is uniquely structured with advanced heat resistance characteristics, along with an outer anti-friction layer.  These elements synergistically combine to produce exceptional wear resistance and sliding properties that result in improved tool life, reduced torque, optimized chip evacuation and superior thread finish.

Mr. Mark Hatch, Emuge Corp. Product Director said, "The Emuge Z-Tap is engineered for the economical and efficient tapping of stainless steels and other alloy, tool and cast steels."

Emuge Z-Taps feature an increased number of flutes and a shortened thread section to reduce friction, and a lower cutting torque to reduce the occurrence of tap breakage and enable higher cutting speeds.  The Z-Taps line is available in through-hole and blind-hole designs for thread lengths up to 3xD.  Blind-hole taps offer two chamfer designs - a full bottoming (1.5-2 threads) and a modified bottoming (2-3 threads).  A DIN length is available for improved chip clearance in hard-to-reach tapping applications.  For optimal results, Z-Taps are recommended on CNC machines with synchronous spindles utilizing emulsion coolant lubrication and synchronous tap holders such as the Emuge Softsynchro® Holder.   A full line of sizes from no. 4 to ¾" are available in UNC, UNF and Metric Fine and Coarse, 160 sku's in total.                                                           

Emuge Corp. is a wholly owned subsidiary of the 1,500+ employee German company EMUGE-Werk Richard Glimpel GmbH & Co.
