The Garant Master Tap product range now includes additional high-performance taps for reliable thread tapping in stainless and high-alloy steels and is available for thread diameters from M1.6 to M24, with longer lengths for increased reach. It is also available for UNC and UNF inch diameters from No. 2 to 1" standards in addition to the thread standards M, MF, and G (BSPP).

The Garant Master Tap Inox is suitable for producing through and blind hole threads with a tolerance of 6GX. It provides top process reliability, performance capability, and a long working life. A special cutting edge geometry provides evenly turned chips that are ejected in a targeted way due to optimized flutes. The backs of the teeth are specially designed to shear off chips, polish chip roots, and prevent loose or twisted swarf from forming.

The cutting edges of the Garant Master Tap Inox are rounded off to ensure reliable thread machining in stainless and high-alloy steels. As a result, the teeth resist fracture and the tool wears evenly. A wear-resistant HSS-E-PM tool material and low-friction TiAIN multi-layer anti-friction layer protect against premature wear.

Users that want to machine materials such as different steels, aluminum, brass, and cast iron can alternatively make use of the Garant Master Tap general-purpose tap, which achieves precise results, even in ductile copper alloys, without any axial overcutting.

These new tools are available now from Hoffmann’s eShop and can be ordered using the 2020/2021 catalog, which launched Aug. 1, 2020.
