Programmable Hydraulic Tapping Arms combine power and efficiency.

July 14, 2015

Promoting machine tool utilization efficiency and shortening cycle times, FlexArm Hydraulic Tapping Arms run tapping and threading operations offline while CNC is running. Tapping 1 ½ in. in mild steel at 110 rpm is made possible due to Hydraulic Power Packs and gearboxes, and tapping and threading with FlexArm while lathe is running eliminates thread milling operations. End-users can program exact RPM for forward and reverse, and programmable depth control allows consistent tapping depth.
