Taps – precision for perfect results
You can thread almost any material, even materials that are difficult to machine. This requires to use the tools with appropriate rake angles, base materials and surface treatments. To cut through-hole or blind-hole threads, select the appropriate form of the tap suitable for your application.
Cutting geometries that fit exactly
Every material shows individual chip behavior. Therefore, taps must have the correct rake angle and - for even better results - a specially treated surface. This is the only way to ensure good chip transport and to produce a true-to-gauge thread. All BAER taps, with their precise grinding pattern, burr-free cutting edges and relief-ground thread, ensure that friction and temperature are reduced during tapping and chip removal is improved. To prevent the entire thread profile from rubbing against the workpiece, the thread is already relief-ground over the entire thread profile beginning from the chamfer. This means that the tap has to absorb less force and chip jamming is avoided. The result: Tool life time is increased and the tap needs to be replaced less frequently.
Quality for long life time
The high quality of the steel we use ensures that our tools are extremely robust. Special hardening and multiple tempering processes make the hardness structure very homogeneous and offers a perfect basis for a genuine BAER tap. This increases the toughness and stability of the taps and allows them to remain in use for longer time.
