New high performance taps for large diameter tapping from Kennametal feature a wear-resistant powder metal substrate and proprietary top layers and coatings, designed wind turbine component machining of hubs, rings and gearbox housings.

Called Beyond HSS-E taps, the new threading tools are available from M24 t M42. Designed for both conventional non-rigid and CNC-synchronous tapping machines, precision h6 shanks enable use in either conventional tap holders with square drive or in precision round toolholders. Wind energy component suppliers will want to note an extra-long version is available to reach the longer overhangs common on these large components.

"Unlike other choices on the market, the addition of these large-size taps with our KSEM Plus modular drilling program provide a complete solution to drill and finish the hole,” says Kennametal's Marcelo Campos, senior global product manager, tapping. "Where most other large-size taps are specials, we're providing a broad standard range of differentiated designs and coatings for increased speeds and better tool life across a wide spectrum of applications.”

Multi-Tasking: Is it Right for Your Shop?

For manufacturers looking to achieve that competitive edge, you can do no better than a multi-tasking machine. They eliminate the need for separate milling and turning machines, multiple set-ups and, most importantly, they improve productivity.
