The process of cutting a thread in a hole is called "tapping". Guhring offers a full range of taps for the creation of internal thread forms. Metric is the most commonly used thread for screws, nuts and bolts. Metric Fine, UNC, UNF, BSW, BSP and others thread forms are also available including a full range of Roll taps for thread forming operations.
Using only premium substrate materials such a cobalt, pm cobalt and carbide, Guhring threading tools are designed to last longer and provide high quality thread results. Guhring taps are produced to DIN specifications and thread mills to Guhring Standard for a variety of different applications. The colour ring system allows the user to quickly choose the correct tap style for the material that is being tapped.
