Taps can be divided into straight flute thread taps, spiral flute thread taps, spiral point thread taps and thread forming taps. They are also divided into hand taps and machine taps according to the usage. Hand taps are operated by tap wrenches. Machine taps are suggested to be used with tap collets with overload protection. Recommended feed rate: General steel: 6-15m/min; harder steel: 5-10m/min; stainless steel: 2-7m/min; cast iron: 8-10m/min.
Straight Flute Taps
Straight flute design, downward chip removal, fast tapping with accuracy. Suitable for processing through holes or shallow blind holes.
Easy to Use
Used on drilling machines, tapping machines, CNC and milling machines. Use with tapping oil to get higher quality threads and more durable taps.
Features just the base substrate without any additional coatings, suitable for wide ranges of applications.
High Speed Steel Taps
High hardness and strength, good toughness
Good wear resistance and heat resistance..
Good process performance.
Perfect for drilling and tapping aluminum, zinc, alloy etc..
Machine taps are suggested to be used with tap collets with overload protection. Hand use or electric drills use is easy to cause breakage to the tap, so it is not recommended.
Use with tapping oil to get higher quality thread and more durable taps. Cutting oil is lubrication, cooling and anti-sticking. Be sure to select the appropriate cutting oil for complex tapping process and apply anti-rust oil for maintenance after use.
Thread Size: M5x 0.8mm. High-speed steel taps are with high hardness and toughness for wear resistance, well suited for general purpose applications.
Can make new threads or re-thread damaged or jammed threads. Uncoated taps feature just the base substrate without any additional coatings, and fit a wide range of applications.
Suitable for most metals, iron plate, copper, zinc, alloy steel, abrasive steel, A3 steel, stainless steel, etc.. Appropriate addition of coolant (e.g., water) can extend the service life when tapping.
Standard metric thread design, clear and tidy, provide rapid chip removal for efficient threading.
The mini metric taps are mainly used for clocks, watches, low hardness wood and soft metal hole processing.
