6 Helical Thread-Forming The EMUGE Punch Tap for thread production in Aluminum and similar materials is a faster alternative for mass production environments. Thanks to its innovative, very short motion process, it establishes an entirely new dimension of productivity. A comparison between the tool path of the EMUGE PunchTap with the tool path of conventional taps or roll form taps shows that the path of the PunchTap is approximately 15 times shorter for a thread M6 with thread depth of 15 mm. The result is a significant time savings of up to 75% in a threading cycle. Contact Emuge for more information about this revolutionary concept.
