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.
Every once in a while, a new design comes around that can be truly called revolutionary, and the Punch Tap, developed in association with Audi AG, is one of those products. The Punch Tap was developed to significantly reduce the cycle time associated with threading aluminum castings. Emuge not only created a new type of tool for helical thread-forming but also a completely new technology for machining threads. The new process produces internal threads at a significantly reduced energy consumption and faster by approximately 75% compared to the conventional threading technology. Companies that are involved with mass production of aluminum parts are using Punch Tap to drive down production time and costs.Visit Microsite
