The MultiTAP is designed to cut a range of materials including carbon steel, steel alloys, stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass and bronze. The tap is designed to produce threads within both 2B and 3B classes of fit.
The tap is constructed of a 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 full 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.
According to the company, the tap is designed for a job shop or a manufacturer that works with short- and medium-run threading applications across a spectrum of materials.
Hitting the Coolant Sweet Spot
Toolholders with integrated cutting fluid delivery channels offer threaded, fixed-position nozzles that direct parallel streams of coolant to pre-defined positions at the top of the cutting tool.
