Our Shark Line grows with the addition of the Black ring tap for high strength steels and titanium alloys.
Available in spiral point (E816, E817, E916, E917) and spiral flute (E805, E806, E905, E906) geometries for through and blind hole threading, the new taps provide high performance and process security in hardened and tempered materials below 45 HRC.
Immediately identifiable by their black ring, the new taps incorporate a robust geometry to increase cutting edge strength and support problem-free, high quality thread production.
Like our complete Shark Line of DIN ANSI taps, the Black Shark features a TIAlN-Top coating and is manufactured from a unique powder metallurgy tool steel for toughness, longer tool life and increased performance at higher operating temperatures.
Each tap within the Shark Line assortment features a color ring denoting material suitability, promoting quick and easy tool selection. Other material types covered in the range include red ring for alloy steels, yellow for structural, carbon and low alloy steels, blue for stainless steel and white for cast iron.
