From Standard → To Special

When and why to switch

Reducing the cost-per-hole offers you additional value. Just because it “works’ doesn’t mean it’s “working’ on all levels and vantage points. Consider the following:


  • How frequently do you run this job/tool?
  • How many of these taps do you purchase per year?
  • How many units do average per tap?
  • What is the standard deviation?

Having an intimate knowledge of these areas will greatly impact your decision and, quite frankly, enable us to come up with a competitive solution to meet your unique tap tooling needs.

In order to create the most suitable, cost effective tool design to meet your specifications and requirements we encourage you to contact our engineering department. Each job is unique and certain information is needed by our engineering team to be able to design and quote a tooling solution.
