Yamawa will introduce at the forthcoming EMO exhibition in Hannover (Hall 5, Stand B83), the new MHSP taps specifically designed for improving productivity in medium hardness carbon steel blind holes tapping.

Yamawa MHSP taps
These new taps extend the range of Yamawa solutions dedicated to the automotive industry, which is one of the key areas at the German edition of EMO. The MHSP family allows exceptional finish quality of the internal thread and cutting speed ranging from 5 to 30m/min according to the type of steel to be machined.

MHSP taps feature specific coating and geometry to enable an extremely long tool life, marking a further step forward for the range of SP (Spiral) solutions for steel. The SP range includes already the ISP for hand tapping, SP for general purpose use, AU+SP for high performance and universal use, F-SP for high speed tapping and HFISP with internal coolant for ultra-high speed tapping.

Specifically designed for the automotive industry, this new type of tap allows to improving significantly the productivity in manufacturing of workpieces such as hub bearing, connecting rods, crank shafts, tie rod ends, differential ring gears, swing bearings.
