Emuge Corp. will display MultiTAP, the industry's first high performance tap designed to cut a wide range of materials including carbon steel, steel alloys, stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass and bronze, at IMTS 2010. MultiTAP is designed to produce threads within both 2B and 3B classes of fit, eliminating the guesswork of calculating H-limits. Emuge Corp. will be at IMTS Booth# W-1536.
"MultiTAP is the ideal tap for a job shop or a manufacturer who works with short and medium run threading applications across a wide spectrum of materials. It will significantly improve thread quality and boost output while reducing production costs, because one high performance MultiTAP will handle most common materials and applications. MultiTAP eliminates the need to stock numerous types of taps in the tool crib" says Peter Matysiak, president of Emuge Corp. "MultiTAP is the result of collective years of Emuge's extensive tapping expertise, application research and a challenge the company issued to its engineers to design a multi-purpose tap. Emuge design engineers responded by choosing a select base material, along with a special cutting/flute geometry and a surface treatment that would work in as many common materials and applications as possible."
MultiTAP is constructed of a proprietary grade of high speed steel (HSS-E), Nitrided with a Ne2 surface treatment. It is available in both spiral point and spiral flute configurations for through-or blind-hole applications. Tap sizes cover a full range for UNC or UNF threads. MultiTAP will be available by the end of June through Emuge distributors. Emuge is also offering guaranteed performance for MultiTAP: If the tool does not successfully outperform the user's current taps in most common materials, the tool purchase will be fully refunded.
