Floating Tap Diagram

Features

  • Axial compensation prevents breaking taps
  • Locking feature prevents spinning the tap
  • Reduced clearance requirements

*Compatible with the standard collet chucks for
ER, DR, RD, ESX, BR or DIN 6499 collet pockets

Applications: CNC lathes, VDI turrets, angle heads, CNC machine center, swiss style turning machines, and driven heads on CNC lathe turrets.

Simply program the machine 5% behind the recommended pitch feed of the tap to make the floating collet work. Return out of the tapped hole at 100%.

Use Techniks “Power Coat” nut for extra holding power in the collet pocket.
