With threadrolling taps from sizes; 000-120 to 1"-12 as standard stock, we doubt that you'll not find the "threadfloer" to suit your threading application. These standard taps are also stock in "H" limits varying from H2 to H14. If metric threads is what you need, BALAX also manufactures standard sizes from; M1.6 x .35 to M18 x 1.75 in "D" limits ranging from D2 to D14

Some of the major advantages of "cold forming" or "thread rolling" tap over regular cut taps are; Chipless tapping, Stronger threads, Better thread gaging, Stronger taps, Longer tap life, More efficient production also thread forming taps are ideal non-lead screw tappers. They have the ability to form their own leads which works well in NC machines or other machines without lead screws.

Does this mean that thread cutting taps should not be used? Of course not. There are many applications where a cut tap will work just as well as thread forming taps where thread forming is not as applicable. For instance, according to BALAX, High carbon steels are better threaded with a gun or slow spiral fluted cut tap. The same is suggested for Nickel alloys. Also, for magnesium you would use similar cut taps, and so on. For a complete summary of BALAX taps and their applications, Click Here to request a print catalog.
