About Tap Sets
Tap Sets are tools used to cut threads into a material. They consist of individual taps and dies, as well as sets of taps, that are typically made out of steel or carbon steel. Tap Sets can be bought in kits or individually and are commonly used in industrial settings and engineering jobs.
Types of Tap Sets
Different types of tap sets exist for different purposes. For example, thread tap sets have taper taps that make it easier to thread holes with a specific size, while 1 inch tap sets are designed for larger-sized materials. Tapping sets also come in various sizes, such as metric and imperial sizes.
How Tap Sets Are Made
Tap Sets are usually made from hardened carbon steel which is designed to resist wear and tear when cutting into materials like wood, plastic, or metal. Some Tap Sets may also include a variety of lubricants which help ensure the tool's longevity by reducing friction during the cutting process.
Industries That Use Tap Sets
Tap Sets are commonly used in industries such as automotive repair, aerospace engineering, plumbing work, carpentry work and other professions where threading is necessary. Professionals use these tools to create internal threads on bolts or screws so they can be secured in place.
