Enorm Z Taps

Stainless Steel & Various

The Enorm Z geometry is a very aggressive cutting geometry with elevated rake and relief angles is suitable for a multitude of long-chipping materials. It is designed especially for CNC-controlled machine tools. Synchronous feed control, especially in combination with Emuge's collet holders of the Softsynchro® series, will bring out the full performance potential of these tools. 


For Stainless Steel material, Emuge recommends the Z-Tap with GLT-1 high performance coating. GLT-1 coated Z-Taps produce consistent, controllable chip formations that are ejected smoothly and efficiently from the tap. GLT-1 has a unique multi-layer structure with an anti-friction top layer. The wear and heat resistance of the coating combined with the outer ant-friction layer produce a longer lasting tool that requires less torque and produces superior thread finish qualities.

The Enorm Z tap is designed for blind hole threads in long-chipping materials. The fast spiral flutes provide good chip removal from the blind hole. Depending on design and size, threads up to 3 x D can be cut. Not to be recommended for threads beginning with an increased diameter.


  • Powdered metal HSSE-PM substrate for added wear resistance
  • 35-50° right-hand spiral flutes
  • Chamfer form E (1.5-2 threads)
  • Chamfer form C (2-3 threads)
  • For blind hole threads in long-chipping materials
