North American Tool Corporation will display their line of made-to-order special taps and popular special taps at the 2014 IMTS Show – Booth W-2474 in the Tooling Pavilion.

At this year’s show, the company will feature its newly released Tap Hole Size Calculator, a mobile app for smartphones. The app features a calculator for recommended hole sizes when tapping various materials.

This functional tap engineering app is more than a hole size calculator in that the user can also achieve torque and horsepower recommendations based on the type and size of tap, material being tapped, spindle RPM and tap style used (hand, spiral point, spiral flute).

Tap application calculations are further enhanced by a fully functional trigonometry calculator which aids in resolving angles in certain tapping applications. Practical tapping applications include determining hole positions and calculating the material depth required to drill a hole at any angle. There are many other general machining applications as well.

North American Tool has been a trusted manufacturer of special taps and thread tool products providing cutting tool solutions to industry since 1986. You can also view North American Tool’s Thread Tap App® at IMTS. The Thread Tap App® features a complete listing of popular special taps in inch and metric sizes, as well as taps made to custom specifications.
