About MicroFLOAT Taps

Techniks Microfloat Tap Chuck

Teckniks’ MicroFLOAT Quick-Change Tap Holders feature tension/compression float technology optimized specifically for rigid tapping, greatly improving overall tap performance.

Longer Tap Life Saves Time & Money

During the tapping cycle, the load on the tap peaks as the spindle reverses direction, a common cause of tap breakage.

MicroFLOAT Tap System greatly reduces this load, stabilizing the tap throughout its cycle, increasing tap life up to 295%.
