Our Pantographic tapping arm will tap from M6 to M24 in mild steel and aluminium. The taps are held in a quick change collet system driven by an electric motor. The motor is mounted on a articulated arm which maintains parallel motion. The smooth arm action allows the tap to be brought into position swiftly and easily.
The electric motor is equipped with a chuck and each tap is held in its own collet. Each collet has a ratchet clutch, the torque is preset for each size of tap preventing tap breakage. The clutch system will allow blind holes as well as through holes to be tapped. The torque clutch allows the tap to stop turning when it encounters any obstruction that may cause tap breakage. The torque setting is adjustable.
With the increase in speed over hand tapping and removing tapping operations from manual and cnc machinery, our tapping arm will prove to be an affordable alternative.
The articulated arms are also capable of many other common operations including chamfering/deburring, helicoil insertion and nut driving.
