The EXOTAP® A-Tap® is an all-purpose tap series designed to simplify tool management and to excel in a wide variety of materials and applications.
The EXOTAP® A-Tap® is made from powdered metal HSS and has OSG's patented V coating to achieve excellent wear resistance.
The spiral flute series has adopted a variable helix flute design, which encourages stable chip evacuation and reduces cutting forces. The spiral point series has unique geometry that enables greater chip control that can help produce tightly compacted chips for easy ejection from the hole.
Ideally suited for:
The Exopro-CC-SUS spiral tap series from OSG Tap & Die is designed for tapping stainless steel, as well as carbon and alloy steels.
Constructed of vanadium high speed steel, the tap features a variable lead-flute design with chip control for stable chip evacuation. This new series provide increased consistency, improved reliability and extended tool life with water-soluble coolants. The taps are available in sizes ranging from No. 2 to 1" and M2 to M4.
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is “rigid tapping” or “synchronous feed tapping.” A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory, a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
The special feature absorbs the pitch difference between the tap and spindle, which exorbitantly reduces the thrust loads on the tap and workpiece. This stretches tool life, and improves overall thread quality...up to 90%. Mega Synchro comes in a wide variation of 47 bodies and 258 tap holders. The various combinations of body and tap holder offers ideal projection lengths for any machine
The Mega Synchro Tapping Holders will provide you with the variety necessary to create ideal projection lengths from job-to-job and reduce those problematic bottlenecks in your CNC cycle time.
