High Performance Tap

The company’s MultiTAP, a high performance tap designed to cut a range of materials including carbon steel, steel alloys, stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass and bronze, produces threads within both 2B and 3B classes of fit, eliminating the guesswork of calculating H-limits.   The tap is especially useful for a job shop or a manufacturer who works with short and medium run threading applications across a spectrum of materials.

The company’s MultiTAP, a high performance tap designed to cut a range of materials including carbon steel, steel alloys, stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass and bronze, produces threads within both 2B and 3B classes of fit, eliminating the guesswork of calculating H-limits.
 
The tap is especially useful for a job shop or a manufacturer who works with short and medium run threading applications across a spectrum of materials. It is designed to significantly improve thread quality and boost output while reducing production costs, because one MultiTAP will handle most common materials and applications. It eliminates the need to stock numerous types of taps in the tool crib, the company says.
 

The tap is constructed of a proprietary grade of high speed steel (HSS-E), nitrided with a Ne2 surface treatment. It is available in both spiral point and spiral flute configurations for through- or blind-hole applications. Tap sizes cover a range for UNC or UNF threads, from #4-40 to ¾”-16 in inch sizes to metric sizes from M4 × 0.7 to M16 × 2.0.
