Union Butterfield 1585OV(UNC) High-Speed Steel Spiral Point Tap, Uncoated (Bright) Finish, Round Shank with Square End, Plug Chamfer, 3/8"-16 Thread Size

Model: 1011756   |    Mpn: 15853/8   |    Ean: 0698464022661   |    PartNumber: 15853/8   |   Asin: B003JY6AMQ

The Union Butterfield 1585OV(UNC) uncoated, high-speed steel spiral point tap has a relieved-style design, straight flutes with a plug chamfer, and a round shank with a square end, and is used in a range of materials to create right-hand threads that will be plated or heat-treated after tapping. It is available in ANSI UNC (Unified Coarse) thread standard sizes. The spiral point of this tap (sometimes referred to as a gun tap ) pushes chips ahead of the tool and the straight flutes reduce clogging. Both characteristics make it suitable for threading through holes (extending through the workpiece). Relieved-style design reduces the friction between tap and workpiece for longer tool life. Oversized taps are used to create threads that are slightly undersized to allow for material added by plating or heat-treating after tapping. Relieved-style design reduces the friction between tap and workpiece for reduced tool wear. A plug chamfer distributes cutting to ease tapping at the beginning of the hole and to maintain correct perpendicular alignment with the workpiece.

Right-hand threads are designed to tighten when the head or nut is rotated clockwise (the most common threading direction). High-speed steel (HSS) is a common general-purpose steel for cutting tools, and is compatible with a variety of materials. With no coating or surface treatment, this uncoated tool can be used on a broad range of materials and provide an economical alternative to coated tools. The round shank with square end helps to minimize rotation in the tool holder. This tool can be used in machines, such as drill presses or lathes, or with hand tools such as tap wrenches.

In the Union Butterfield 1585OV(UNC) tap series, taps with 1/4 to 5/16 nominal diameters have two flutes, and those with 3/8 to 5/8 nominal diameters have three flutes. In this series all taps have plug chamfers. This tap conforms to ANSI standards and can create threads to a depth 2 times its diameter.

Taps produce internal threads in previously formed holes and can be used in machines (such as drill presses) or with hand tools. Common types of taps include hand taps, spiral point taps, spiral flute taps, thread forming taps, and pipe taps. Hand taps (straight-flute taps) collect chips in the straight flutes of the tool; spiral point taps push chips through holes ahead of the tool; and spiral flute taps pull chips back from the tip of the tool, up and out the hole. Thread forming taps, also known as cold forming taps, press rather than cut to create threads in a drilled hole, and no chips are created. Pipe taps create threads in pipes and pipe fittings. Each thread type designates a thread profile and each type is identified with an abbreviation. In the U.S. and Canada, the Unified Thread Standard is the dominant thread type, including UNC (Unified Coarse), UNF (Unified Fine), and NPT (National Pipe Taper) threads, among others.

Union Butterfield 1534NE(UNC) High-Speed Steel Spiral Point Tap, Uncoated (Bright) Finish, Round Shank with Square End, Plug Chamfer, 4" O'all Length, 3/8"-16 Thread Size

Model: 1020036   |    Mpn: 1534NE3/8X16X4   |    Ean: 0698464123177   |    PartNumber: 1534NE3/8X16X4   |   Asin: B003JY616G

The Union Butterfield 1534NE(UNC)/1534NE(UNF) uncoated, high-speed steel spiral point tap has a non-relieved design, straight flutes, and an extended round shank with a square end, and is used to create right-hand threads in a range of materials. It is available in two different ANSI thread specification standards: UNC (Unified Coarse) and UNF (Unified Fine). The spiral point of this tap (sometimes referred to as a gun tap ) pushes chips ahead of the tool and the straight flutes reduce clogging. Both characteristics make it suitable for threading through holes (extending through the workpiece). The non-relieved design has concentric threads without pitch diameter relief. It is recommended for applications requiring close gauging fits and in older equipment or manual feed rate applications where the feed rate control is not sufficient for a relieved-style tap. The extra-long shank of this tool is designed for extended reach. The plug chamfer distributes cutting to ease tapping at the beginning of the hole and to maintain correct perpendicular alignment with the workpiece.

Right-hand threads are designed to tighten when a head or nut is rotated clockwise (the most common threading direction). High-speed steel (HSS) is a common general-purpose steel for cutting tools and is compatible with a variety of materials.

The round shank with square end helps to minimize rotation in the tool holder. This tool can be used in machines, such as drill presses or lathes, or with hand tools such as tap wrenches.

In the Union Butterfield 1534NE(UNC) tap series, machine-screw sizes 4 to 10 and nominal diameters 1/4 to 5/16 have two flutes, and 3/8 to 1/2 have three flutes. In the 1534NE(UNF) series, machine-screw size 10 and nominal diameters 1/4 to 5/16 have two flutes, and 3/8 to 1/2 have three flutes. All taps in these series have plug chamfers. This tap conforms to ANSI standards and can create threads to a depth 2 times its diameter. It is suitable for the ANSI 3B tolerance class: 3B produces close-tolerance fasteners used for greater resistance to stripping, as in aerospace applications.

Taps produce internal threads in previously formed holes and can be used in machines (such as drill presses) or with hand tools. Common types of taps include hand taps, spiral point taps, spiral flute taps, thread forming taps, and pipe taps.

Union Butterfield TN1585(UNC) High-Speed Steel Spiral Point Tap, TiN Coated, Round with Square End, Plug Chamfer, H3 Tolerance, 3/8"-16 Thread Size

Model: 1060320   |    Mpn: TN15853/8-16H33FL   |    Ean: 0698464004780   |    PartNumber: TN15853/8-16H33FL   |   Asin: B003JY761U

The Union Butterfield TN1585(UNC)/TN1585(UNF) high-speed steel spiral point tap has a relieved-style design, straight flutes with a plug chamfer, titanium nitride (TiN) coating, and a round shank with a square end, and is used to create right-hand threads in a range of materials. It is available in two different ANSI thread specification standards: UNC (Unified Coarse) and UNF (Unified Fine). The spiral point of this tap (sometimes referred to as a gun tap ) pushes chips ahead of the tool and the straight flutes reduce clogging. Both characteristics make it suitable for threading through holes (extending through the workpiece). Titanium nitride (TiN) is a gold-colored ceramic coating that combines hardness with low friction for extended cutting tool life and permits faster cutting speeds than with uncoated tools. Relieved-style tap design reduces the friction between tap and workpiece for reduced tool wear. A plug chamfer distributes cutting to ease tapping at the beginning of the hole and to maintain correct perpendicular alignment with the workpiece.

Right-hand threads are designed to tighten when a head or nut is rotated clockwise (the most common threading direction). High-speed steel (HSS) is a common general-purpose steel for cutting tools, and is compatible with a variety of materials. The round shank with square end helps to minimize rotation in the tool holder. This tool can be used in machines, such as drill presses or lathes, or with hand tools such as tap wrenches.

In the Union Butterfield TN1585(UNC) tap series, taps with nominal diameters of and 5/16 are available with two or three flutes and those with diameters of 3/8 to have three flutes. In the TN1585(UNF) series, taps with nominal diameters of and 5/16 have two flutes and those with diameters of 3/8 to have three flutes. All taps in these series have plug chamfers. This tap conforms to ANSI standards and can create threads to a depth 2 times its diameter. TN1585(UNC) taps are suitable for ANSI 2B and 3B tolerance classes: 2B is an average quality fit for commercial and industrial fasteners; 3B produces close-tolerance fasteners used for greater resistance to stripping, as in aerospace applications. TN 1585(UNF) taps are suitable for the ANSI 3B tolerance class.

Both characteristics make it suitable for threading through holes (extending through the workpiece). The tap s black oxide finish improves lubricity, resists corrosion, and will not chip or flake. It also helps to prevent buildup of welding materials on the tap s cutting edge when working with iron and steel. A plug chamfer distributes cutting to ease tapping at the beginning of the hole and to maintain correct perpendicular alignment with the workpiece.

Right-hand threads are designed to tighten when a head or nut is rotated clockwise (the most common threading direction). Powdered-metal steel offers performance that approaches that of solid carbide tools but with the toughness and shock-resistance of high-speed steel. The round shank with square end helps to minimize rotation in the tool holder. This tool can be used in machines, such as drill presses or lathes, or with hand tools such as tap wrenches.

In the Dormer MTT-X E026 series, taps in machine screw sizes 2 to 12 have two flutes, taps with nominal diameters of 1/4 to 3/8 are available with two or three flutes, taps with a nominal diameter of 7/16 have three flutes, taps with a nominal diameter of 1/2 are available with two or three flutes, and those with nominal diameters of 9/16 to 1 have three flutes. In the MTT-X E036 series, taps in machine screw sizes 10 and 12 have two flutes, taps with nominal diameters of 1/4 to 3/8 are available with two or three flutes, taps with a nominal diameter of 7/16 have three flutes, those with a nominal diameter of 1/2 are available with two or three flutes, and those with nominal diameters of 9/16 to 1 have three flutes. All taps in both series have plug chamfers. This tap conforms to ANSI standards and can create threads to a depth two-and-a-half times its diameter. It is suitable for the ANSI 3B tolerance class: 3B produces close-tolerance fasteners that resist loosening, as in aerospace applications.

Taps produce internal threads in previously formed holes and can be used in machines (such as drill presses) or with hand tools. Common types of taps include hand taps, spiral point taps, spiral flute taps, thread forming taps, and pipe taps. Hand taps (straight-flute taps) collect chips in the straight flutes of the tool; spiral point taps push chips through holes ahead of the tool; and spiral flute taps pull chips back from the tip of the tool, up and out the hole. Thread forming taps, also known as cold forming taps, press rather than cut to create threads in a drilled hole, and no chips are created. Pipe taps create threads in pipes and pipe fittings. Each thread type designates a thread profile and each type is identified with an abbreviation. In the U.S. and Canada, the Unified Thread Standard is the dominant thread type, including UNC (Unified Coarse), UNF (Unified Fine), and NPT (National Pipe Taper) threads, among others.

YG-1 J1 Series Vanadium Alloy HSS Spiral Pointed Tap, TiN Coated, Round Shank with Square End, Plug Chamfer, 5/16"-18 Thread Size, H3 Tolerance

Model: J1443   |    Mpn: J1443   |    PartNumber: J1443   |   Asin: B00F8WJBUK

YG-1 J1 series vanadium alloy HSS spiral pointed tap. High-speed steel tools are good for most general purpose applications, offering a combination of hardness and toughness for wear resistance. Titanium nitride coatings add a hard layer of gold-colored ceramic to the surface that extends tool life and permits faster cutting speeds than uncoated tools. Round shanks allow use with a wide variety of toolholding systems. Straight flute tools allow chips to collect in the flutes as they cut and are well suited for most applications in shallow cuts. Right-hand cut tools have a cutting action that engages when they are run in a clockwise direction. Applications: Good for steel castings and forgings/heat-treatable alloy steels, free machining stainless steel, heat and corrosion-resistant stainless steel/valve stainless steel, aluminum alloy castings, nodular cast iron/chilled cast iron/meehanite iron/ductile iron. Excellent for low carbon/free machining carbon steel, medium to high carbon steel.

Union Butterfield TN1585(UNC) High-Speed Steel Spiral Point Tap, TiN Coated, Round with Square End, Plug Chamfer, 2 Flute, 1/4"-20 Thread Size

Model: 1060292   |    Mpn: TN15851/4-20H32FL   |    Ean: 0698464004742   |    PartNumber: TN15851/4-20H32FL   |   Asin: B003JY760Q

The Union Butterfield TN1585(UNC)/TN1585(UNF) high-speed steel spiral point tap has a relieved-style design, straight flutes with a plug chamfer, titanium nitride (TiN) coating, and a round shank with a square end, and is used to create right-hand threads in a range of materials. It is available in two different ANSI thread specification standards: UNC (Unified Coarse) and UNF (Unified Fine). The spiral point of this tap (sometimes referred to as a gun tap ) pushes chips ahead of the tool and the straight flutes reduce clogging. Both characteristics make it suitable for threading through holes (extending through the workpiece). Titanium nitride (TiN) is a gold-colored ceramic coating that combines hardness with low friction for extended cutting tool life and permits faster cutting speeds than with uncoated tools. Relieved-style tap design reduces the friction between tap and workpiece for reduced tool wear. A plug chamfer distributes cutting to ease tapping at the beginning of the hole and to maintain correct perpendicular alignment with the workpiece.

Right-hand threads are designed to tighten when a head or nut is rotated clockwise (the most common threading direction). High-speed steel (HSS) is a common general-purpose steel for cutting tools, and is compatible with a variety of materials. The round shank with square end helps to minimize rotation in the tool holder. This tool can be used in machines, such as drill presses or lathes, or with hand tools such as tap wrenches.

In the Union Butterfield TN1585(UNC) tap series, taps with nominal diameters of and 5/16 are available with two or three flutes and those with diameters of 3/8 to have three flutes. In the TN1585(UNF) series, taps with nominal diameters of and 5/16 have two flutes and those with diameters of 3/8 to have three flutes. All taps in these series have plug chamfers. This tap conforms to ANSI standards and can create threads to a depth 2 times its diameter. TN1585(UNC) taps are suitable for ANSI 2B and 3B tolerance classes: 2B is an average quality fit for commercial and industrial fasteners; 3B produces close-tolerance fasteners used for greater resistance to stripping, as in aerospace applications. TN 1585(UNF) taps are suitable for the ANSI 3B tolerance class.

Taps produce internal threads in previously formed holes and can be used in machines (such as drill presses) or with hand tools.
