In addition to the wide range of thread cutting tools, Völkel is now also offering machine taps for the very small thread sizes M1 to M1.8. According to the manufacturers, these are produced according to DIN 371 and are available as spiral point as well as 35° spiral flute versions. They have been conceived for materials with good machinability up to 900 N/mm2 and can be used for un-alloyed and low-alloyed steel grades. As is the company's entire product range, the small-size machine taps are reportedly available from stock. On demand, the new taps can be coated with TiN or TiCN or can be surface-treated with steam tempering. As the exhibitors point out, these additional options further enhance the wear resistance to enlarge the range of possible applications and prolong the tool lifetime.
