Emuge is widely known for manufacturing high performance application-specific taps, thread mills and end mills for high production output. However, now Emuge has designed MultiTAP to offer job shops and other manufacturers an affordable, high performance tapping solution for a wide variety of common materials and applications.
“MultiTAP is the ideal tap for a job shop or a manufacturer who works with short and medium run threading applications across a wide spectrum of materials. It will significantly improve thread quality and boost output while reducing production costs, because one high performance MultiTAP will handle most common materials and applications. MultiTAP eliminates the need to stock numerous types of taps in the tool crib,” said Mr. Peter Matysiak, President of Emuge Corp.
“MultiTAP is the result of collective years of Emuge’s extensive tapping expertise, application research and a challenge the company issued to its engineers to design a multi-purpose tap. Emuge design engineers responded by choosing a select base material, along with a special cutting / flute geometry and a surface treatment that would work in as many common materials and applications as possible. In addition, the tap was designed to cut threads to both the common 2B class of fit, as well as the tighter 3B class,” continued Matysiak.
MultiTAP is constructed of a proprietary 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.
MultiTAP is available through Emuge distributors. Emuge is also offering guaranteed performance for MultiTAP: If the tool does not successfully outperform the user’s current taps in most common materials, the tool purchase will be fully refunded.

Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.
Applying ceramic inserts is not a simple substitution of one cutting tool material for another. There are significant process considerations that shops should examine carefully in order to realize performance and tool life expectations from ceramic inserts. Here's a look at some of the ways they are used.
