PIPE TAPS / SKIP TOOTH
Especially for short-chipping material. The flutes can hold only a part of the chips. There is practically no chip transport in an axial direction. We do not recommend using this tap type in deep blind hole or through hole threads in long-chipping material.
- With “alternating teeth”, flank friction can be reduced. Coolant-lubricant can flow freely between the friction partners.
For stainless steel materials and steel materials
- With tough and long-chipping materials, the chips must be transported in an axial direction in order to avoid chip jams. An increased profile relief angle reduces friction and with it, the danger of cold welding.
