Screw thread, also commonly known as the thread is a mechanical component used to transmit rotational movement to linear movement. In this transmission, two types of threads are in use; namely external thread and internal thread; also known as screw and nut respectively. They can also be called male thread and female thread. During this transmission process, a rotational force is given to screw which is converted into linear motion within the nut. These screw threads have utility in multiple industrial applications. The advantage is that linear motion cannot be converted into rotary motion. In this process, the threads used to cut and manufacture the internal thread (female thread) are known as thread taps. In the 19th century, square thread taps had wide use for this purpose. Due to wear and tear, they modified the design, and trapezoidal taps were being widely used to make internal metal threading. Need to buy these taps? Gaugestools.com is the best place to purchase trapezoidal thread taps.
Why do you want to use trapezoidal thread taps? What are the advantages?
Here we can see few advantages of a trapezoidal thread tap:
- Increased thread accuracy, which gives perfect friction to hold the screw inside the nut, unless you give a particular load of rotational force. It can minimize operator errors.
- Precision cutting performance
- The angle of thread usually is 30O, which helps in smooth power transmission.
- Low manufacturing cost when compared to square threads.
- Higher load carrying capacity
Both Right-Hand (RH) and Left-Hand (LH) trapezoidal taps are available in gaugestools.com. The right-hand tap is used to make the nut where the screw is rotated in clockwise direction to tighten. They use the left-hand tap to make the nut where a bolt is rotated counterclockwise to tighten it. Right-Hand (RH) taps are most commonly used ones, and so if you need to order an RH tap, you need not mention. But if you would like to order an LH tap, you need to specify it as “LH”.
High-Speed Steel (HSS-E) is the material used to make these trapezoidal thread taps. This grade of HSS comes under Cobalt High-Speed Steel which has 5% of cobalt. It gives higher heat resistance and hardness for the tap. The taps have a good surface finish, but they can be coated for better tap life. There is an option available for special coatings with TiN, TiCN, CrN or TiAIN. You will have to mention the coating type while ordering.
It is now straightforward to buy trapezoidal thread tap from Gaugestools. You will have to specify few requirements such as the size, the pitch, the lead and properties of the material to be threaded. Also, do not forget to mention if you need it as an individual tap or in the sets. The taps are also available in the form of sets; taper taps, plug taps and bottom taps. These taps have multiple applications to make both through hole and blind hole. Gaugestools also provide easy and safe payment options which include credit card, PayPal, western union money transfer and regular bank transfer. The shipping is fast because the company ships through Express, DHL or UPS. So, Gaugestools is the right place to buy high quality trapezoidal thread taps; to make precision internal threading.
