Carbide Taps from Allen BenjaminDesigned to offer superior strength, carbide taps are essential to maintaining high rates of production. Because of their durability, they contribute to lower production costs, higher productivity and longer tool life. Affording manufacturers a more dependable, more cost-efficient solution to their tapping needs, carbide insert taps, which are typically used in place of solid carbide in diameters exceeding ½” or M12, have been a mainstay in the metalworking industry for many years.

Materials and Carbide Taps

Carbide taps are highly efficient when tapping very abrasive metals, including space-age alloys, exotic materials, aluminum and non-ferrous metals. Exhibiting a much higher tensile strength than traditional – or standard – taps, they have long been the go-to solution for metalworkers that need to work with difficult materials.
