Tap - Spiral Cutting

Spiral flute taps are commonly used in industry to create a thread in a blind hole, typically in materials under 45HRC. The helical or spiral flute will evacuate chips up and out of the blind hole. The geometry of such taps will have subtle differences depending on the application.  Because of its inherent flexibility, the iTap software will cater for any tap geometry and will grind all tap features in one setup. On this tap shown, TapX grinds flute, thread and crest, and chamfer.
