Glacern Floating Tap Holders

Product Overview
Floating tap holders, aka Tension/Compression Tap Holders are the perfect solution when you need to tap a hole. Bridging the synchronization gap between toolhodler and Z-axis feed, the spring mechanism compensates for the minute acceleration and deceleration a tap experiences when reversing as the axial feed typically does not account for this slight variance. Using floating tap holders can dramatically improve the tap life and thread quality, because the extra axial forces on the tap are eliminated.

Features
  • Reduces risk of tap breaking
  • Controls tapping process by adding axial compensation
  • Use with common ER32 or ER16 collets
  • Helps increase tap life and thread quality
  • Tension and compression to eliminate feed errors
  • Electroless Nickel Plated Finish
  • Precision ground surfaces
  • Tapers and flange hardened to 55 HRC
  • Rear thread for pull stud 5/8-11 UNC
  • All CAT40 chucks balanced to G2.5 @ 20,000RPM



Extra Info When machining a thread, the following rule applies. (Feed rate = Pitch x Spindle speed) If the tap RPM and the feedrate do not follow the rule, the result is damaged threads. If the tap is rotating but not moving forward, you risk the tap breaking or getting a bore instead of a tapped hole. Floating tap holders function as if you're tapping by hand, the tap only rotates at a speed proportional to the ptich and rotation speed of your hand. In essence, it allows the tap to "float".
