MORTON GROVE, Ill –  December 1, 2016 – Alfa Tools has introduced three new series of High Performance Taps suitable for CNC and machine-driven threading applications.  These U.S. made Taps join Alfa’s extensive threading product offering. They work in a variety of applications including stainless steel, softer metals, titanium and nickel alloys.

The new series include Spiral Pointed Taps and Spiral Fluted Taps for multi-purpose, low tensile, or high tensile applications. Users can choose the tap with a specific thread relief that is best suited to the material hardness of their application. All of the new Taps feature a steam oxide finish providing high wear resistance.

“Exotic, hard-to-machine metals are being used more and more in Aerospace and Automotive production,” said Ross Shepard, Sales Manager, Alfa Tools. “The addition of these high-performance taps to our product line allows our distributors to provide taps that are application specific to their end-user customer base.”

The Multi-purpose High Performance Taps are designed for threading not only in stainless steel, but also include a wide range of materials hardened up to HRC-40.

The High Performance Taps for low tensile materials are best suited for mild steel applications and materials hardened up to HRC-32.

The High Performance Taps for high tensile materials are best suited for titanium and nickel alloys and other materials hardened up to HRC-44.
