What Types of Thread Taps Do We Have?

Heygo Thread tap Manufacturing Process Video

A thread tap is a tool for generating threads, also known as tapping tool. The thread cutting taps are mainly used to cut or form a concave thread paired with a screw on the internal surface of the hole. The process of using a tap to cut or cutting threads is called a tap.

There are many different types of thread taps need to be used for various applications and purposes. Common thread tap types are the following: Spiral point taps, spiral flute tap, Straight Flute Taps

As a Standard, custom size tapping manufacturer and supplier from China; You can get the spiral point, spiral flute, straight flute taps supplied in bulk quantity with cheap price from Heygo, also custom or special geometry taps can be designed, manufactured, and supplied on customer’s request.

Spiral Point Taps

Spiral point taps are commonly used to make holes throughout metal materials. The spiral point tap has a spiral cut and a release groove. However, spiral taps look like manual taps. However, the helix angle on the front cutting edge helps eject chips, and the angled edges also have excellent cutting performance.

Spiral point machine taps are specially designed for high-speed production, and spiral taps may be the cheapest thread tapping for power tapping and have a faster running speed than manual tapping.

Spiral Flute Taps

Spiral flute taps are taps similar to twist drills because they have an open spiral shape. Due to the good drilling ability of spiral groove taps in blind holes, they are widely used in high speed, automatic tapping, and other drilling applications.

Spiral flute machine tap is commonly used in machines, aluminum, and mild steel metals. When using spiral flute taps, the depth and accuracy of the thread are higher, because its special shape allows chips to be efficiently and cleanly discharged from the hole.

Generally, the advantages of spiral flute taps include the following:

  • It can effectively prevent chips from accumulating at the bottom of the hole.
  • When the machining process is interrupted, restarting tapping becomes easier.

Straight Flute Taps

Straight fluted taps are the most affordable and simplest taps. The tap is designed for manual or hand use, and the thread on the tap is straight. Besides, this tap is also suitable for through holes or blind holes.

Some advantages of straight fluted taps include:

  • All-in-one features may reduce the number of tools required.
  • It is very suitable for metal materials such as cast iron that will produce short chips.
  • According to your needs, it can be transitioned from machine to tap wrench.

  • HSSE tap can be used for tapping threads stainless steel, hardened steel, high silicon aluminium, and other hard materials.
  • The main disadvantage of vanadium high-speed steel(HSSE) taps is that they are more brittle than standard HSS taps
HSS E Cobalt Taps 300x120 - THREAD taps

Cobalt Taps

  • HSCO Cobalt tap is an upgraded version of HSS tap because it contains 5-8% cobalt
  • Compared with HSS taps, the cobalt thread tap has better wear resistance, higher hot hardness, and toughness.
  • Cobalt taps run 10% faster than HSS taps, with little or no chipping
  • Cobalt HSCO is an economical material, and cobalt taps can be used for tapping threads in cast iron, steel, and titanium alloys.

Optional Thread Tap Coatings We Can offer

TiCN (Titanium Carbon Nitride)

TiCN coated taps are stiffer, more wear-resistant, and have higher speeds than most other coated thread taps.

TiCN-coated thread taps are commonly used for tapping in stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum alloy, and some difficult-to-tap steels. It has obvious advantages in the processing of steel workpieces.

Black Oxide

Black Oxide is a black surface coating that improves heat resistance, reduces friction, as well as improving the flow of material out and increases chip flow.
Black oxide thread taps are used for tapping in alloy steels, carbon steel, composition board, wood, and plastic workpieces.

TiN (Titanium Nitride)

Titanium Nitride (TiN) is a general-purpose coating. TIN coated taps can be run at higher speeds than uncoated taps. It can increase tap life by up to five times that of an uncoated tap.
TiN Thread taps also provide additional resistance to heat damage and reduces friction in the tap head, which offers high lubricity and increases chip flow in softer materials.

TiAlN (Titanium Aluminum Nitride)

TiAlN coated taps(titanium aluminium nitride) are purple-black, PVD technology. It is mainly used for threading cast iron, cast aluminium, and other wear-resistant material workpiece castings.

This coating is generally preferred under harsh conditions.

From the shape, it can be divided into Straight Flute Taps, Spiral Flute Taps, Spiral Point Taps, and form taps.

From the usage, it has a hand tap and machine tap.

From the standard, it has ISO, DIN, JIS, and UNC, etc.

It means the hole machined in an object does not penetrate through the whole entity

Blind hole means the hole machined in an object does not penetrate through the whole entity, while through-hole does.

According to the pitch of the thread tap, the drill will need an 8.5-9mm size.

According to the size of hole, it will need M1-M52

It is usually used to cut threads in a hole that has already been partially threaded using one of the more tapered types of tap, generally thread blind hole.

Machine tap usually refers to HSS tap, which is suitable for tapping on machine tools;

Hand tap refers to a carbon tool tap, which is suitable for manual tapping.

Machine taps generally used by 1pcs. Hand taps are generally used by 2pcs/3pcs for one set.

The flute of the taps is the channel for chip removal. During threading, there will generate high heat, the flute will help the coolant oil into the hole to reduce the heat and increase the performance of the taps.

No, hss drill bit is used on Metal.

Yes, cobalt drill bits are harder, with higher precision and more wear-risisting. And they belong to middle- high HSS drill bits.

Let’s Learn About Thread Taps

How To Choose The Suitable Thread Taps?

How to choose the right thread and tapping the right threads that you need? You need to consider the following factors:

1. The type of thread Hole: a blind hole or through-hole.

The thread tapping ability will depend on whether the thread you want to make is a blind hole or a through-hole. Blind holes need to penetrate to a certain depth, but will not penetrate the workpiece to the other side, while the through-hole will penetrate the workpiece to the other side. So please first determine the type of threaded hole you want to make.

2, Fluting types: Straight flute or Spiral flute

Many thread taps have channels cut into flutes to guide the discharge of chips. Different flute types can evacuate chips or pull them out and away from the tool. These chip flutes are valuable, depending on whether you want to make blind holes or through holes.

3. The material of thread Taps

The material of the tap will also affect your tap selection. For example, the material hardness of some machined parts may be more durable than the tapping material. How the workpiece material forms chips are also necessary. When used in combination with specific taps, some materials will form short chips, while others will form spiral chips.

4. Thread tap types

The thread cutting tap types will be used on the type of hole to be threaded. There are four main types of thread taps:

  • Straight flute tap: It can be used for the blind hole and through-hole
  • Spiral pointed taps: used for through-hole production.
  • Spiral flute taps: used for blind hole production
  • Forming taps: used for blind holes and through holes.

Thread tap types - THREAD taps

5.  Thread standards

There are five different standards for tapping tools: ISO, ANSI, DIN, DIN/ANSI, and JIS.

  • DIN and ISO thread standards are widely used all over the world
  • ANSI thread standards are mainly used in the US market,
  • JIS thread standard is mainly used in the Asian market.
  • The OAL (full length) of ISO, ANSI, and JIS is very short and very similar, except that the diameter of the shank is different.
