Drill Tap Tools enable single-step drilling, tapping, deburring.

January 23, 2015

Intended for use on up to 10 gauge metal and supplied with 6 commonly used tap tools, Drill Tap Tool Kit (Cat No. 32217) lets users drill, tap, and deburr in one step. Each tap works with quick connect in power tools, and carrying case keeps taps in one place for immediate access. While 1/4 in. hex facilitates application with quick connect, high speed steel promotes durability. There are 6 tap sizes, plus 2 extra of commonly used bits, and carrying case comes with 2 bonus bits. Read More

Threading Taps feature multi-layer coating.

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. Read More

In-Die Tapping Heads suit press speeds up to 200 spm.

July 30, 2013

Designed for metal stamping industry, Series 3000 offers tapping capacity of #2–56 to ¼–20 and press strokes from 2 ½–16 in., while Series 6000 features #6–32 to ½–13 capacity and press strokes from 3–20 in. Units can be removed from die without pulling die from press, minimizing downtime by eliminating multiple die set ups. Tapping heads include adjustable coolant ring, optimized lead screw/tap collet design, and multiple mounting options for press accessibility. Read More

Blind Hole Tap eliminates bird's nest swarf.

May 16, 2013

Designed for tapping long-chipping high tensile strength steels, Prototyp Paradur® Short Chip HT Tap has 15° helix angle for chip removal, even in deep and protected threads. This reduces to 9° helix angle which, combined with ground rake in chamfer, ensures creation of short chips. Axial internal cooling rinses chips out of hole through spiral flutes. Tool life is optimized by THL hard coating, except on reduced helix in lower section of tool which is ground after coating is applied. Read More

Forming Tap produces threads within 2B and 3B classes.

February 18, 2013

Made with DIN length shank for extra reach, MultiTAP-Form is suitable for use with carbon steel, steel alloys, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, and bronze. TiN coated high-speed steel tap features short chamfer lead of 1.5–2 pitch, which is suited for bottom tapping. Lubrication grooves allow coolant flow-to-form action for holes requiring long thread length. Taps are available for UNC or UNF threads, from #4-40 to 3/8-24 in. sizes and  metric sizes from M4 x 0.7 to M10 x 1.5. Read More
