West Boylston, MA– Emuge Corp. introduces a new tap program "Z-Taps", an extensive line of taps featuring design and engineering that make them ideal for stainless steels, high strength alloys, tool steels and cast steels <=30Rc. Emuge Z-Taps are designed with an advanced chamfer geometry and rake/flute form. GLT-1, a newly developed multi-layered coating, produces a consistent, controllable chip formation that is released smoothly for fast and efficient chip removal, says the company. GLT-1 is uniquely structured with advanced heat resistance characteristics, along with an outer anti-friction layer. These elements synergistically combine to produce exceptional wear resistance and sliding properties that result in improved tool life, reduced torque, optimized chip evacuation and superior thread finish. Emuge Z-Taps feature an increased number of flutes and a shortened thread section to reduce friction, and a lower cutting torque to reduce the occurrence of tap breakage and enable higher cutting speeds. The Z-Taps line is available in through-hole and blind-hole designs for thread lengths up to 3xD.
