Heavy Duty 3-Flute Spiral Point Taps
Spiral point taps shear chips and direct them forward, away from the hole
Spiral point taps have shallower flute passages, giving them more cross-sectional area for greater strength, higher tapping speeds, and less power necessary to drive them
Also commonly referred to as “gun” taps
XL22 Spiral point taps have three flutes for easy-starting, less tooth load, and greater strength
Necked design for deeper tapping, which promotes the flow of cutting fluid
Can be used in blind hole applications so long as there is sufficient room at the bottom of the hole to accommodate the chamfer length and the chips produced
Special surface treatment cut tougher materials including stainless steel and protects cutting edge
Made from premium high speed steel, which is heat treated for hardness and toughness
Made in USA
Available from 4-40 through 3/4-16
Available in combination tap and drill sets
XL22T is Titanium Nitride coated which promotes longer tool life and faster speeds
Recommended for all through-hole applications. Used on low through high carbon steels, alloyed steels, steel drop forgings, grey cast iron, titanium, stainless steel, nimonic alloys, manganese, spring steels.
