Rigid/Synchro RTS Taps


Rigid, Synchro or Solid tapping is todays most common method of cut tapping used on the latest CNC machine tools.


DC Swiss have produce a range of taps available in the most common denominations which are absolutley designed to give the highest possible performance with this specific type of thread cutting technique.


Rigid Tapping as many benefits, however if it used incorrectly will still give poor tapping results - tap breakage, oversize or bell mouthed threads are a common complaint.


With DC's Rigid Tapping Synchro geometry ( RTS ) you have a specific tap to suit this operation, it covers a huge material range offering sub contractors a great deal of flexibility.  For best results RTS taps should be paired with our RTS tapping attachments which give a small amount of Axial float ( 1mm +-0,1 ) this allows the method to run at optimum process speeds of upto 50m/min depending on material thus also giving specific manufacturers the smallest possible production times in mass production industries.
