Additional Features

Combination Tap and Drills

Combination taps can reduce costs by doing multiple operations in one pass. Jarvis offers combination tap drills with self centering points off the shelf. Jarvis also produces combination tap reamers to size holes or remove flashing prior to tapping.

Additionally, Jarvis produces piloted taps ground to close tolerances to compensate for tapping equipment that is less than robust. Tap reamers and piloted taps are made to order to meet your specific requirements

Key things to remember:

  1. Two operations on each tool
  2. Ground with close tolerances
  3. Made to reduce productions costs

Jarlock Taps

Jarvis Jarlock Taps

JARVIS JARLOCK TAPS ARE OUR TAPPING SOLUTION GUARANTEED TO FIT SPIRALOCK® THREAD GAGES ON THE MARKET SUCH AS:

  • Hi-Limit Ramp
  • GO PD and Ramp Gage
  • No-Go PD Gage

Jarvis designs both cutting taps and forming taps (Jarflo) for your application. Jarvis works directly with you to develop the optimal geometry for your process. This results in significant performance improvements over the catalog tools. For example, Jarvis designed taps for a specific application in Inconel 718, resulting in a 17X tool life improvement over the premium Spiralock® solution!

Unlike the generic Spiralock® taps, Our Jarlock tap tools are designed specifically for your material. Some of the materials Jarvis designs our Jarlock taps for include:

  • Ductile Iron
  • Inconel
  • PD550
  • Steel Alloys
  • Titanium
  • And more…

Industries our Jarlock (Spiralock®) tapping tools are utilized in include:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Deep Sea
  • Mining
  • And more…

Our customers need a competitive advantage, and gaining an advantage in this competitive industry is not easy. It requires work, discipline, and more work. It requires both you (aka the customer) and us (aka the supplier) to define the objective, test the options, measure the results, and implement the solution. Standard catalog items can take you only part of the way; why not experience an exclusive solution?

With that in mind, Jarvis’ exclusive tooling solutions have been continuously proven to reach far beyond the performance of the tools you are using now. Contact us today to set up a free consultation and (if applicable) trial period to help cultivate the exact tool you need to achieve a competitive advantage. Who can’t benefit from that?

Jarhook Taps

This product line is designed specifically for tapping A286. Most of the A286 parts that these taps thread are aerospace fasteners. The combination of the premium high speed steel substrate, the Titanium Carbo-Nitride surface treatment, and the free cutting geometry make this product line the top choice for aerospace manufacturing companies.

THIS PREMIUM TAP IS PART OF OUR JARHOOK PRODUCT LINE (AEROSPACE).

COOLANT-THROUGH / COOLANT-FED TAPS

Coolant-Through / Coolant-Fed Taps

JARVIS COOLANT-THROUGH / COOLANT-FED TAPS SET THE INDUSTRY STANDARD FOR HIGH QUALITY, TAPPING TECHNOLOGY.

Our Coolant-Through / Coolant-Fed tapping solutions are designed to deliver direct coolant flow to the working section of the tap to ensure that your job is successfully completed at the lowest possible cost-per-hole.

OUR COOLANT-THROUGH / COOLANT-FED TAPS DIRECT COOLANT FLOW:

  • Axially – through the center of the tap and are designed for blind hole applications.
  • Radially – along the flutes and are designed for through hole applications.

THE BENEFITS COOLANT-THROUGH / COOLANT-FED

IN OUR TAPPING SOLUTIONS ARE VAST:

  • Dramatically improved fluid delivery
  • Improved chip evacuation in deep hole applications
  • Significant reduction of heat at cutting/forming location. This reduction of heat results in improved thread finish and longer tool life.

COOLANT-THROUGH / COOLANT-FED TAPS ARE IDEAL FOR:

  • Tapping a variety of challenging applications of resilient, abrasive materials.
  • Taking advantage of the benefits of new machining centers and their high-pressure coolant systems.
  • Increasing efficiencies in overall tapping operations, which ensure bolstered tool life and greater output of tapped holes per tool.
  • Deep hole tapping applications where coolant delivery and/or chip evacuation are issues.
  • Tap applications where you want to optimize tool life.

OUR COOLANT-THROUGH / COOLANT-FED TAPPING TOOL SOLUTIONS ARE DESIGNED FOR A VARIETY OF MATERIALS, WHICH INCLUDE:

  • Ductile Iron
  • Inconel
  • Steel Alloys
  • Stainless Steels
  • Titanium
  • And more…

INDUSTRIES COOLANT-THROUGH / COOLANT-FED TAPS ARE UTILIZED IN INCLUDE:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Agriculture
  • Heavy Equipment
  • Mining
  • And more…

A286 Taps

FASTENERS FOR AUTOMOTIVE, AEROSPACE AND GENERAL PURPOSE APPLICATIONS ALL DEMAND CONSISTENT HIGH QUALITY THREADS.

Lucky for you, that’s why Jarvis Cutting Tools exists. To bring to market superior cutting tools that bring out the most in any fastener application. Further, since fastener manufacturers operate with very close profit margins, the taps used must be cost effective by generating long tool life and performing at a high rate, all at the lowest possible cost.

One such fastener that is of utmost importance when it comes to the tap is the A286 fastener. For this particular fastener, Jarvis has long been the purveyor of the Jarhook product line of taps. Our Jarhook tap is the best available tap for A286 fasteners. In fact, during extensive testing the Jarhook surpassed all of the competition in tool life and tapping speed. In a controlled testing environment the 10-32 Jarhook A286 tap achieved an average tool life of 1,200 holes at a speed of 1,000 RPM in A286 6-point nuts. This outperformed the competition at this speed by over 30%.

JARVIS A286 TAPS (AS WELL AS EVERY TOOL IN OUR EXTENSIVE LINE OF FASTENER TAPPING SOLUTIONS ARE) ARE:

  • Designed specifically for the material
  • Designed for optimal tool life
  • Consistent high quality threads
  • Available in different configurations (spiral point, spiral flute, forming) for your application
