EASTEC 2013: Forming Tap


The new MultiTap-Form is high-performance general-purpose forming tap designed for tapping in a wide range of materials and applications. This tap delivers performance increases in materials EASTEC 2013: Forming Tapincluding steel alloys, carbon steel, stainless, aluminum, copper, brass, and bronze. In lab tests, the tap demonstrated four times the life compared to a leading brand form tap. MultiTap-Form is also designed to produce threads within both 2B and 3B classes of fit, eliminating the guesswork of calculating H-limits. The tap features a new geometric design, a proprietary grade of high-speed steel (HSS-E) and is TiN-coated for exceptionally long life and versatility. A short chamfer lead of 1.5–2 pitch is ideal for bottom tapping, and lubrication grooves allow coolant flow-to-form action for holes requiring long thread length. All MultiTap-Form Taps are made with Emuge’s trademark long shanks, which are DIN length, designed for extra reach. Tap sizes include a range for UNC or UNF threads, from #4-40 to 3/8-24" ( 0.375-610 mm) to metric sizes from M4 x 0.7 to M10 x 1.5.
