Ideal for grinding taps and other small cutting tools

Equipped for production thread grinding of parts from 1mm to 10mm diameter by up to 100mm long, Drake’s GS:TEM-100 “Mini” Thread Grinder is ideal for grinding small forming or cutting taps, and is aimed at higher volume, precision threaded parts manufacturers in the cutting tool, automotive, aerospace and small electronics industries.

In addition to taps, the Drake GS:TEM-100 excels at grinding thread rolls, thread gages, worms, ball screws, and aerospace fasteners.

Drake’s forming and cutting tap software, small diameter wheel (200mm) and low-mass wheel axis provide intricate control over the shape of a form tap’s lobes and relief. Drake also provides multi-rib rolls for form or cut taps with topping and chamfer features.
