Dormer Tools , part of the Sandvik group, introduces a new range of DIN standard multi-application taps made from premium quality vanadium powder steel.
Designed to promote a continuous production process, the Spectrum range of multi-application taps offers improved thread quality, increased productivity and reduced cost per threaded hole.
The new DIN standard taps are ideal for anyone performing threading operations in steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, cast iron, copper and aluminium.
The new Spectrum range complements Dormer’s existing ranges of ISO and ANSI standard multi-material taps.
Key features of Spectrum multi-application taps include:
- three radii flute profile with a constant rake angle that facilitates the creation of narrow, regular chips
- chip evacuation is enhanced by the short thread length with added benefit of reduced torque during threading
- manufactured from premium quality vanadium powder steel for superior edge strength and wear resistance; and
- 30%-70% increase in tool life achievable compared to standard DIN taps.
