The Hoffmann Group’s Garant MasterTap is a universal high-performance tap that has been added to the Garant Master product family for high-performance cutting. This is the result of a new development concept for the design of universal taps. The tool achieves process reliability with high efficiency in a range of materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and cast iron.

The tap’s ability to remove chips is due to a new geometry as well as optimized flutes, which facilitate reliable removal of the chips. Winding chips and loose swarf can be avoided.

When reversing in blind hole machining, the tap is said to ensure a reliable process as the chips are sheared off in a targeted manner via the tooth back and the chip roots are smoothed for various materials such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and cast iron. The tool can machine high-strength steel materials with its deliberately rounded cutting edges and the rounding also ensures a defined and continuous wear behavior without breakouts.
