Self-Reversing Tapping Attachment Boosts Cycle Times
Tapmatic’s large-capacity RCT150 self-reversing tapping attachment for machining centers is designed to reduce cycle times.
Tapping Attachments Reduce Cycle Times
Tapmatic’s RCT50 and RCT150 self-reversing tapping attachments for CNC machining centers are designed to reduce cycle time for high-production tapping.
In-Machine Marking Tool Eliminates Secondary Operations
With an in-carousel design and compact size, Tapmatic’s marking head can mark a part while it is still set up in the machine, eliminating secondary operations, additional equipment and labor.
Variable Center-Distance Multispindle Heads
Distributed by Tapmatic, OMG’s variable center-distance multispindle heads include the T series, the VH series and the TSI-TSX series.
Mark Parts While Manufacturing
Tapmatic says its durable and dependable TapWriter dot-peen marking system allows users to mark parts while they are being manufactured without extra operations. Using standard engraving software, the system can mark 80 characters per minute or more, depending on the CNC machine’s capability.
Self-Reversing Tapping Head Speeds CNC Production Job
When Prestige Precision Products (PPP), a shop in Rochester, New York, began ramping up for a recent high-production job, it made a substantial investment in new equipment dedicated to the project. Among the acquisitions were a new HMC with a pallet changer, customized tombstone fixtures for the pallets and some innovative tooling items. The part, an aluminum component for the automotive industry, had one hole to be drilled and tapped.
Rigid Tapping--Sometimes You Need A Little Float
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
