When comparing the tool path of the EMUGE Punch Tap with the tool path of conventional taps or cold-forming taps, it shows that the path is approximately 15 times shorter for a thread M6 with a depth of thread of 15 mm. The result is a significant time savings up to 75% in a threading cycle.
Instructional animation showing how the thread forming process works. The video demonstrates how material is displaced rather than cut and the slight “fish mouth” that is formed at the crest of each thread. Formed threads are stronger than cut threads and the tapping time is less.
