Tapping Tools Eliminate Secondary Threading Operations

Tapping tools eliminate secondary threading operations

New tapping tools to be displayed by Wilson Tool save time and help fabricators achieve their lean-manufacturing goals by eliminating secondary threading operations. Wilson tapping tools for punch presses form threads with a higher tensile strength than those cut by conventional machine tapping, and allow fabricators to tap a threaded hole with every machine stroke, at up to 200 holes/min. Tools are available for most brands of turret-style punch presses. Visit www.wilsontool.com/punching/WTV_Tapping.html for a demonstration.
