Long Shank Taps
Long shank (LS) taps with extended reach are identical in flute geometry to standard length taps. Tap extenders are available if long shank taps are not an option. see example
- Enorm - Typical tool for blind hole threads in long-chipping materials. The fast spiral flutes provide good chip removal from the blind hole. VA design is for stainless steel and steel alloys.
- Rekord A-H - Well suited for short-chipping and abrasive material such as cast iron and hardened steel.
- Rekord B - Typical tool for through hole threads in long-chipping material. The spiral point pushes the tightly rolled chips ahead and prevents clogging of the flutes. VA design is for stainless steel and steel alloys.
- Rekord D - Slow spiral design well suited for automatic lathes and multi-spindle machines. The slow spiral flutes will be especially helpful in thread holes beginning with an increased diameter (counterbore or enlarged bore).
