Materials to be tapped:
for cast iron
Taps with carbide strips combine the benefits of a flexible HSS shank and hard cutting edge. As a result, slight alignment faults can be compensated for and at the same time, long tool life achieved. The KOMET JEL® SIREX HML tap has been specially developed for machining spheroidal graphite cast iron (GJS), and joins the existing KOMET JEL® GG HML tap, designed for machining vermicular graphite iron (GJV) and grey cast iron (GJL), in the HML range.When used by our customers, it has proven exceptionally successful on machining centres and transfer lines: The KOMET JEL® SIREX HML achieves up to eight times the tool life of conventional HSS taps in spheroidal graphite cast iron (GJS), and is the perfect tool for reliable, efficient machining.
