WHITE BEAR LAKE, MINN., April 16, 2018 – Wilson Tool International, the largest independent manufacturer of tooling systems for punch presses, press brakes, and punch and die components for the stamping and tableting industries, announced today that the QuickTap™ tapping tool is available for the D station as well as the previously available C station size.

It affords fabricators the ability to eliminate time-consuming secondary operations related to creating threaded holes by running the tool right in the punch press.
 
QuickTap Tapping Tool Features

  • Taps a threaded hole with every machine stroke – up to 200 holes per minute (dependent on material type, thickness and tap size)

  • Produces accurate threads at any programmed location on the sheet

  • Creates stronger threads, as formed threads have a higher tensile strength than cut threads.

  • Reduces or eliminates shavings from machined tapping

  • Built-in tapping fluid injection system is synchronized with the machine stroke to reduce wear and breakage

  • Tapping injection system’s large tank enables the tapping of up to 40,000 holes before refilling

  • Taps are available in both imperial and metric sizes

  • Tool lubrication is made simple using external grease and oil ports

  • Accepts multiple sized taps
