Spiral Point Machine Taps

Spiral Point Machine Taps

Suitable for tapping holes that go all the way through a workpiece, spiral-point machine taps have a spiral point that pushes chips in front of the tap as it moves into the material and out through the other side, eventually pushing the chips out of the hole. These taps are intended for use on 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 Improved Lubrication Black Oxide Coating

Suitable for use in a variety of materials, these high speed steel taps have a black oxide coating on the surface that increases wear resistance for extended tool life and helps retain lubricants, improving chip flow and performance. The coating is rust resistant and has a black color.

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.

Oversize Taps

Also known as pre-plate taps, oversize taps create threads that are larger than the standard thread diameter. They are commonly used for tapping applications where you need to accommodate an increase in thread diameter when threads are coated or heat-treated after tapping.
