Seco-Carboloy has added a general-purpose geometry to its range of Snap Tap thread turning tools called the "A" chipbreaker. It provides consistent machining of numerous thread forms in both steel and stainless steel. As a direct-pressed insert, it is offered in packaging that allows users to purchase as little as two inserts.

The A geometry complements two existing A1 and A2 chip geometries within the simplified Snap Tap range. The A1 is an optimizing geometry for steel components and A2 optimizes performance in stainless steel materials. Both provide enhanced chip control, which is especially important in ID threading where poor chip evacuation can damage the workpiece and reduce both tool life and performance.

All three geometries are available in the company's grade CP500 that features a wear-resistant PVD coating to provide dependable machining for the large majority of common thread turning applications.
