TC142 blind-hole taps from Walter USA are designed for machining stainless steels and ISO-M materials. The taps also have a secondary application in ISO-P materials, particularly in softer steels, which requires more chip control. Tapping stainless steel using standard tools can often lead to tool breakage, the company says, because of the material’s high level of toughness. This tap series is designed to handle the material without breaking.

The tap is available in two versions. Grade WW60RB provides long tool life and high cutting speeds thanks to its wear-resistant coating, making it ideal for high-volume production. Grade WY80FC, with its vaporized surface, promotes high process reliability because of its chip control capabilities.
