Threading Advanced High Strength Steels?
We have the taps!
Tested Performance – Proven Results
From common tool sets to custom geometrical needs, Jarvis Cutting Tools creates toolsets
for our customers that are, quite simply, second to none.
The absence of cutting material due to the use of forming taps eliminates chip residue, and thus, the absence of chips eliminates the need for flutes, resulting in a solid, stronger tap for your application.
Since the thread is formed and not cut, there are no chips to interfere with the tapping process or to cause chip-removal problems in blind holes. This enables cleaner holes with improved surface finish.
Longer Tap Life
Jarvis’ industry-leading forming taps last 3 to 20 times longer than cutting taps because they have no cutting edge to dull. This leads to cost savings and greater returns, which in the end equals a stronger hold and a bolstered bottom line. Both are sound business practices.
The grain flow of formed threads – as a result of form tapping – follows the contour of the thread resulting in greater thread strength.
Better Thread Gaging
Forming taps rearranges the metal in the hole to create the thread. Because no metal is cut away, the possibility of producing oversized threads is greatly reduced.
