Walter Introduces New High-End Blind Hole Tap for Stainless Steels

New TC142 blind hole tap increases tool life and process reliability

Waukesha, WI – The new high-end TC142 blind hole taps from Walter are precisely designed for machining stainless steels, ISO M materials. The taps also have a secondary application in ISO P materials, particularly in the softer steel which require more chip control.  Tapping stainless using standard tools can often lead to tool breakage because of the material’s high level of toughness. The TC142 is designed to combat this failure mode.

The TC142 comes in two versions: Grade WW60RB grade provides for long tool life and high cutting speeds thanks to its wear-resistant coating, ideal for high-volume production. The second version is grade WY80FC, with a vaporized surface that guarantees a high level of process reliability thanks to its excellent chip control.

Walter, a global leader in the metalworking industry with over 90 years of experience in precision cutting tools for milling, drilling, turning, boring and specialized tools, helps customers improve process reliability and increase productivity. With Regional Headquarters in Waukesha, WI, Walter markets its competence brands Walter Valenite, Walter Titex, Walter Prototyp and Walter Multiply through a strong network of distributors and field engineers across subsidiaries in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.
