Emuge Corp. Introduces New Generation of Taps for Hardened Steel, Cast Iron Materials

WEST BOYLSTON, MA U.S.A. (April 15, 2020) – Emuge Corp., a leading manufacturer of high performance taps, thread mills, drills, end mills and other rotary tools, announced the introduction of its A-H family of taps, a new generation of Premium HSS-E and HSSE-PM Taps for hardened steel and cast iron materials. EMUGE has enhanced its H Series of Rekord-A style taps to provide more standard product solutions for threading hardened steel and cast iron material.

The EMUGE A-H family of taps is the best solution for tapping extremely abrasive materials and those materials with elevated hardness levels, such as cast iron, common in the heavy equipment and agricultural vehicle markets. EMUGE A-H Taps are now available with or without coolant through holes and with TiCN coating, or NT nitride surface treatment, for improved tool life.

Premium HSS-E A-H Taps can tap materials up to 48 Rc hardness. Emuge HSSE-PM A-HCUT Taps can tap materials between 44 and 55 Rc hardness and feature a hard, heat resistant, powdered metal substrate for enhanced cutting performance and extended tool life. The new generation of taps with TiCN coating enhance the surface hardness and help increase the tools' abrasion resistance. A new coolant-fed version with axial coolant holes help aid in chip evacuation.

The new EMUGE A-H family of taps is suitable for short chipping hardened steel and cast iron, and are offered in a Rekord A style for through and blind hole applications. UNC/ UNF thread sizes along with Metric and Metric Fine sizes are available.
