Quicker tapping of small diameters

Tools from M 1 to M 2.5 are now available for the EMUGE Punch Tap thread technology. This allows enormous time savings even for small threads.

Seven small thread dimensions from M 1 to M 2.5 extend the EMUGE Punch Tap tool family. The TiN-coated tools are suitable for internal thread production in aluminum wrought and cast alloys, for example in housing parts in the electronics industry. In difference to the previous dimensions starting from M4, the process has a modified kinematics for diameters up to M 2.5. A straight axial movement of the tool during insertion and retraction replaces the helical movement and thus also realizes time savings of up to 75% in the thread cycle. To produce these small threads, the previous punch tap cycles in the machine controls are further used, only the value for the programmed pitch is adjusted. And all common tool holders without minimum length compensation can be used as tool holders.

For nearly 100 years, the German company group EMUGE-FRANKEN has been one of the world`s leading manufacturers of precision tools for thread cutting, gauging, clamping and milling. With 1,900 employees, EMUGE-FRANKEN offers an innovative product program with 40,000 in-stock items and a multiple of that with customer-specific tools. The product range is focused on applications in the automotive industry, power plants, aerospace industry, medical technology as well as mechanical and plant engineering. As a system supplier for machining industry, EMUGE-FRANKEN has own branch offices or sales partners in 52 countries.
