TM Smith Tool’s LCTH general-purpose compensating tap holder accommodates a broad range of tapping applications. The holder has tension and/or compression for non-synchronous machines and radial float to compensate for misalignment between the workpiece and spindle. The tap holder is available with a straight shank manufactured from premium-grade steel, capable of withstanding harsh environments and rigorous use.

Available in two series, the tap holders feature a quick-change design for convenience and speed. There are five tension and compression combinations available, including full tension for accurate thread depth.

The tap holders can also be used in an end mill holder, collet chuck or lathe tool block. The holder is built to accept tap adapters from a range of industry manufacturers. The company offers design and engineering services to determine the correct type of tap holder for specific user applications.
