Walter USA offers a pair of versatile, high performance and cost-effective taps: the Walter Prototyp TC115, designed for blind-hole threads, and the TC216 for through-hole threads. According to the company, the taps are able to tackle materials ranging from steel to aluminum, save cost by reducing the number of taps needed, and reduce the investment involved in tap inventory.

The TC115 blind-hole tap has a 45-degree helix angle for thread depth of 3×D, and a C-form chamfer. The TC216 through-hole tap features a spiral point for forward chip evacuation and thread depth of 3.5×D. Both have high speed steel (HSS-E) bodies and are available with either TiN or vaporized coating. The vaporized variant is particularly well-suited for tough ISO M materials because it increases process reliability, the company says. Meanwhile, the TiN coating is said to enable longer tool life and higher cutting speeds.
