Wilson's QuickTap D station punching  toolClick image to enlarge

Wilson Tool International  has announced that its QuickTap tapping tool is available for the D station as well as the previously available C station size.

Manufactured by Wilson Tool International for thick turret punch press machines, QuickTap enables fabricators to eliminate time-consuming secondary operations related to creating threaded holes by running the tool right in the punch press.

Features:

  • Taps a threaded hole with every machine stroke – up to 200 holes per minute (dependent on material type, thickness and tap size)
  • Produces accurate threads at any programmed location on the sheet
  • Creates stronger threads, as formed threads have a higher tensile strength than cut threads.
  • Reduces or eliminates shavings from machined tapping
  • Built-in tapping fluid injection system is synchronized with the machine stroke to reduce wear and breakage
  • Tapping injection system’s large tank enables the tapping of up to 40,000 holes before refilling
  • Taps are easily changed – no disassembly is required
  • Taps are available in both imperial and metric sizes
  • Tool lubrication is made simple using external grease and oil ports
  • Accepts multiple sized taps
  • Currently available for thick turret punch presses, C and D station sizes
