Top performance tapping toolsMarch 06, 2012 Written by Rob Colman
Sandvik Coromant introduces a full programme of thread tapping tools for easy selection and use. CoroTap tools are for optimized productivity in each ISO material, and Spectrum Tap tools for reliable performance across a multitude of workpiece materials.
From the CoroTap range you can expect a number of benefits, including high productivity and a highly efficient machining process, says the company. CoroTap 210 and CoroTap 370 are just two of the new introductions which are optimized for steel materials for through holes and blind-hole operations.
Edge design is an important feature and the CoroTap edge treatment and grade ensure reduced axial forces and torque making the tool run more smoothly and with reduced risk for chipping, the surface quality is much improved.
Spectrum Taps is a full range of taps for multi-material use that provide good productivity and high capacity use through their versatility.
This range includes cutting taps available in a choice of DIN, DIN/ANSI, ANSI and ISO standard for through holes and blind holes. They guarantee a high performance with good chip evacuation due to the optimized flute profile and a constant rake angle along the flute.
And forming taps with an optimized flute profile to generate low torque and smooth surface on the finished thread.
The complete range can now be found in the new tap catalogue.
