Modern Machine Shop 127 TOOLING AND WORKHOLDING The Hoffmann Group has added the MasterTap high- performance tap to its Garant Master tool series. This product is the result of a development concept for the design of universal taps, achieving high process reliability and effi- ciency in a wider range of materials including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and cast iron. The key to MasterTap's versa- tility is its effective chip removal enabled by a new cutting edge geometry as well as optimized flutes. These features are said to consistently eliminate winding chips and loose swarf. When reversing in blind-hole machining, the Garant MasterTap promotes reliability by shearing off chips and smoothing the chip roots with a specially designed tooth back. The tool excels in particular when machining high-strength steel materials thanks to its rounded cutting edges, according to the company. This rounding also ensures defined and continuous wear behavior without breakouts and thus a longer service life. The tool's HSS-E-PM cutting material and AlTiX coating help it to achieve high performance and longevity. The smooth coating protects against premature wear and enables high cutting speeds, even in aluminum-wrought alloys, because the low friction values prevent material from sticking and thread corrosion. Thanks to its special guide thread, the tool achieves precise results without axial slicing even in ductile copper alloys, the company says. | Hoffmann Group USA 844-448-7725 Tap's Chipbreaking Geometry Promotes Versatility, Reliability Front and Back Hole Deburring in One Pass!
