Carbide Taps

Carbide TapsAllen Benjamin carbide taps and carbide insert taps have been a mainstay in the metalworking industry for decades. These high tensile strength carbide taps are highly efficient when tapping very abrasive materials including space-age alloys, exotic materials, aluminum, and non-ferrous materials. Carbide taps are available in these various styles:

  • Carbide Straight Flute taps
  • Carbide Spiral Point taps
  • Carbide S.T.I. (Screw Thread Insert) taps
  • Carbide Metric taps
  • "PRX" and "PRC" Carbide Taps for tough, challenging applications
  • Carbide Multi-Flute taps for tapping plastic, resins, fiberglass and like materials
  • Carbide Pipe Taps
  • Carbide Thread Forming Taps
  • Carbide Insert taps with HSS tap bodies
  • Special, Made-to-Order Carbide taps

Allen Benjamin carbide taps can provide a substantial increase in performance and tool life over conventional HSS (high speed steel) taps. This results in lower production costs, higher productivity and longer tool life.
