Our bestsellers: The screw taps

Especially our precision taps are one of the best selling items in our Online-Shop. Here you will find a large selection of different screw taps for various applications, which are used in the cutting of internal threads. With the tap or also tap or tap can be drilled primarily in metals, but also in plastics or other materials internal threads. However, the previously required hole for the thread must be created with a core hole drill.

For cutting external threads, on the other hand, the so-called thread cutting die is used. Of course, you will also find this in our range.

You cut internal threads with BAER hand taps or machine taps. The threads are cut in a predrilled core hole. The taps are suitable for through holes and blind holes.

The non-cutting production of internal threads is carried out with BAER thread formers, also called thread formers. They require machine operation. The compression and deformation of the material increase the strength of the thread.

With the BAER-tap you produce external threads that are cut on bolts. You can operate round dies with die holders or machines. Hexagon nuts are mainly used with wrenches or hexagon nuts.

BAER-Thread plug gauges and thread ring gauges check the dimensional accuracy of manufactured internal and external threads. Thread testing usually takes place in series production. On request, we supply the thread gauges with a calibration certificate.

Popular next to the tap: the thread forming tap

Also popular are our screw taps for chipless thread production, which you can obtain from us, for example, with and without lubrication grooves as well as with oversize or also as custom-made screw taps. Here, too, you can of course count on our conscientious advice if you are unsure about your purchase!

What is the difference between taps and thread formers?

In tapping, the core hole is drilled first, into which a thread is then inserted with the screw tap. The forming tap does not cut the thread in the starting material, but forms the thread profile by deformation. In the process, the edges of the tap push the material to the side, forming mountains and valleys, which, however, finally assume the thread form after several revolutions.
