The All New Z-Tap Only from Emuge

The introduction of Emuge's proprietary Z-Tap geometry is accompanied by an additional announcement. Introducing The Brand New GLT-1 coating. This remarkable coating  is the right choice for threading the toughest stainless or alloyed steel applications. The new GLT-1 PVD coating has a unique anti-friction property that reduces chip welding and increase tool life in austenitic stainless steel applications.

The Z Tap is quite simply the longest lasting tap for stainless steel

Emuge has introduced "Z-Taps", a new program with an extensive line of taps featuring design and engineering that make them ideal for stainless steels, high strength alloys, tool steels and cast steels. <=30Rc.

Emuge Z-Taps are designed with advanced chamfer geometry and rake / flute form. GLT-1, a newly developed coating, produces a consistent, controllable chip formation that is released smoothly for fast and efficient chip removal. GLT-1 is uniquely structured with advanced heat resistant characteristics, along with an outer anti-friction layer. These elements synergistically combine to produce exceptional wear resistance and sliding properties that result in improved tool life, reduced torque, optimized chip evacuation and superior thread finish.

Highlights of the All New Z-Tap

  • No tap is better engineered for the economical and efficient tapping of alloy steels, stainless steels, tool steels, and cast steels <=30Rc

  • Designed with advanced chamfer geometry, rake and flute form, and newly developed multi-layer coating

  • With increased number of flutes and shortened thread section to reduce friction and lower cutting torque, which reduces the chances of tap breakage and allows for higher cutting speed

  • For thread lengths up to 3xD, Z Taps are for, both, through and blind hole applications; with two chamfer designs for blind holes. -Full bottoming (1.5-2 threads) and Modified Bottoming (2-3 threads)-

  • Z Taps are also DIN length with ANSI shank designs forhard-to-reach tapping and improved chip clearance
