Products Description

An ER Tap Collet is a type of collet used in tapping operations, where a tap is used to cut threads into a hole. It is similar to other ER collets in that it is designed to hold tools securely in place in a milling machine, drill press or other machining equipment, but it is specifically designed for use with taps.

ER Tap Collets are available in various sizes to match the different tap shank diameters used in tapping operations. ER Rigid Tapping Collets with Square Drive for synchronous tapping operations using any ER collet chuck. The collet bore is the exact tool diameter, with a square drive, for accuracy and rigidity. Available sealed for coolant-through applications, as well as in DIN and JIS standard metric sizes.

One of the advantages of using an ER Tap Collet is that it provides a high level of accuracy and repeatability when cutting threads. The collet's grip on the tap shank ensures that the tap is held firmly in place, reducing the risk of chatter, deflection or breakage. This can result in higher-quality threads and a more efficient tapping process overall.

Another advantage of ER Tap Collets is that they can be quickly and easily changed out to accommodate different tap sizes. This allows operators to adapt to different threading requirements without the need for extensive tool changes or adjustments.

Overall, ER Tap Collets are a useful tool for those involved in tapping operations, offering increased accuracy, reliability and versatility compared to traditional tapping methods. Get a quick quote.
