Carbide Taps Have the Strength to Cut into “Space-Age Alloys”
The superior strength of solid carbide taps is ideally suited to the economic tapping of abrasive ‘high-hardness alloys’ and nonferrous materials. Carbide offers excellent cutting edge wear resistance, providing a dramatic increase in tap life with less downtime through fewer tool changes.
Solid carbide taps allow higher metal removal rates through higher speeds. You can also use surface treatments on these taps to enhance the tool’s life and performance.
