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 including 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.
