Thread forming taps are used to form internal threads by displacing the metal without producing chips.
Machine Forming Tap for universal use
Up to 20 times longer lifetime (compared to taps)
Same forming tap for through and blind hole
Wide range of materials can be processed
Intersection of the thread is impossible
Very high trueness
Increased strength of the thread
Higher surface quality
Much higher cutting speed
The TIN surface treatment (titanium-nitride gold-yellow) increases the surface hardness (approx. 2300 HV) and the sliding properties.
The Forming Tap has improved geometry for an optimal processing of a big range of materials.
The base material metal powder HSSE addition increases the hardness and the toughness.
The lubrication grooves provide the necessary lubrication to depths of 3.0 D.
Steels up to 1200 N/mm²
Stainless steels up to 1000 N/mm²
Cast aluminum and wrought alloys Si <10% (average chip length)
Copper, copper alloys and brass (long chipping)
Nickel and nickel alloys up to 1000 N/mm²
Please be aware to reach enough cutting speed, so that the material can optimally plasticized.
Recommended only for Machine use.
Cutting oil or emulsion is recommended.
