Sandvik's CoroTap delivers material-specific solutions for threading a variety of metalsClick image to enlargeSandvik Coromant is upgrading its range of tools for steel tapping operations with two updates to its solid round tools range.

The next generation CoroTap T200 spiral point tap and T300 spiral flute tap for ISO P deliver improved process security, longer tool life and a reduced cost per component.

The CoroTap delivers material-specific solutions for threading a variety of metals. The T200 and T300 models are optimized for ISO P1 and P2 steel workpiece materials, making them suitable for machining components in the automotive and general engineering industries.

The CoroTap T200 has a spiral point, while the T300 is a spiral flute tap. While the spiral point of the T200 is suited for machining through holes, where chips are pushed forwards, the T300 is catered to blind holes, where there is no exit hole and chips must be pulled backwards. As part of the upgrade, both tools have a new surface treatment, as well as improved edge rounding for better finishing inside the machined hole. An improved flute form also offers better overall performance.
