monobloc tap / for steel / material-specific
Materials to be tapped:
Shark: Dormers application-based ranges of DIN standard taps are renowned for their high performance and accuracy. They are easily recognisable by their coloured rings, denoting recommendation for use on specific materials.
Yellow Shark is designed for threading low alloy steels, and is available with an electroplated Hard Chrome finish up to 5 micron thick to prevent edge build-up in materials that are prone to sticking to the cutting edges.
Red Shark is designed for high performance thread production in alloy steels and is available in Bright finish or with TiAlN-Top coating for increased protection against abrasive wear and erosion.
The production of threads in a wide range of stainless steels is achieved with Blue Shark. Available with Steam Temper or Super-B (a hard lube coating that prevents chips adhering to the flutes) coatings with specific edge preparation these taps provide extended tool life in even the most difficult stainless steels.
The White Shark has been developed specifically for cast iron and other short chipping materials.
Green Shark has been developed for non-ferrous materials with a Bright or TiAlN-Top finish to provide exceptional cutting service life in aluminium and its alloys, brass and copper.
