Spiral Flute Machine Taps

Spiral Flute Machine Taps

Ideal for tapping blind (closed-ended) holes where chip elimination can be difficult, spiral-flute taps have flutes along the length of the tool that pull chips out and away from the hole as the tap moves into the hole to create threads. These taps are intended for use on a machine such as a drill press, lathe, or CNC machine.

General Purpose High Speed Steel Taps

The most common choice for general purpose hand tapping applications, use these high speed steel taps in a variety of materials, including steel and nonferrous metals.

High Speed Steel with Extended Life Titanium Coating

These taps have a TiN (titanium nitride) coating that provides good temperature resistance and wear protection and provides a smooth surface on the tool that prevents chips from sticking to the cutting edge, helping to extend the life of the tool. High speed steel taps are suitable for use in a variety of materials, including steel and nonferrous metals. TiN coating has a gold color.

Cobalt Steel Taps for Hardened Metals

A good choice for demanding tapping applications, cobalt steel taps provide more wear-resistance at higher speeds than high speed steel taps. They are suitable for use on hard materials such as heat-treated steels, stainless steel, and titanium alloys.

High-Performance Powder Metal Taps

Durable powder-metal taps are harder than cobalt steel taps and offer improved wear-resistance in hard or abrasive materials, but they are also more brittle and require a rigid tool setup. They are suitable for high-temperature tapping applications in materials such as hardened steels, stainless steel, and nickel alloys.
