Walter's AB735 adaptor quick-change system is available for all tool typesClick image to enlargeCompensate for axial movement and pressure during tapping with the AB735 synchronized tapping adaptor from Walter.

Use the adaptor in all common ER collet chucks, meaning a fewer number of tools are required while thread flank wear is minimized since these are strained less when chamfering. The sleek, short, compact design also makes it possible to use the adaptor in tight spaces.

The modular design offers exchangeable front pieces so different thread sizes or tool diameters (ER16 to ER32) can be used with the same collet. It also fits in virtually all ER adaptors, without requiring further investment.

This the quick-change system is available for all tool types, with or without internal coolant. It accommodates internal coolant of up to 725 psi (50 bar), as well as external coolant supply. It is particularly well suited to applications in the series production of threads and/or applications where lack of synchronization results in a high tool wear rate.
