Original Press Release

Walter Perform Taps, the New Standard for Medium and Small Batch Machining, Expanded with an Array of UNC Types.

Press release date: Feb 24, 2017

The tough and versatile TC115 blind-hole and TC216 through-hole taps tackle material ranging from steel to aluminum, saving on inventory costs and enhancing reliability.

Walter has expanded the productive and cost effective Walter Titex Perform lineup of TC115/TC216 taps with an array of new sizes. The Perform lineup of products is one of three categories to Walter Titex threading tools. ‘Perform’ tools are products that provide an economical solution with focused importance on price. The others are ‘Supreme’ indicating the highest level of technology and performance available and the ‘Advance’ which indicates product efficiently balanced between price and performance.

The new sizes include UNC thread styles, giving these highly flexible taps an even wider range of application in a variety of materials. New dimensions for the line include metric fine (MF) M8 × 1 to M18 × 1.5; and UNC #6, 8, 10, plus ¼, 5/16, ⅜, ½, ⅝, ¾.

The versatile TC115 (blind-hole) and TC216 (through-hole) taps tackle material ranging from steel to aluminum (ISO material groups P, M, K and N), and because of this versatility can help save on inventory costs by reducing the number of taps needed. The TC115 blind-hole tap has a 45° helix angle (for thread depth of 3×D) and a C-form chamfer. The TC216 through-hole tap features a spiral point for forward chip evacuation and a thread depth capability of 3.5×D. Both taps have HSS-E bodies and are available with either TiN or vaporized coating. The vaporized option increases process reliability with tough ISO-M materials while the TiN coating provides longer tool life and higher cutting speeds among its benefits.
