Eliminate expensive tapping heads and use the FT tap collets to provide an economical solution to all your tapping needs. Applications include CNC lathes, VDI turrets, angle heads, CNC machine center, swiss style turning machines, and driven heads on CNC lathe turrets.
This collet is great for close center distance on CNC swiss lathes or clearance problems with conventional tapping attachments. We recommend that you use a bearing nut or coated nut to provide extra holding power of the collet in the collet pocket.
Program the machine 5% behind the recommended pitch feed of the tap to make the floating collet work. Return out of the tapped hole at 100%.
Compatible with standard collet chucks for ER, DR, RD, ESX, BR, or DIN 6499 collet pockets.
