The primary gain is the ability to run at much higher speeds and still maintain the best thread quality. The tap life can still be as good as in machines that run at half the speed.
Streicher Maschinenbau GmbH has been manufacturing tapping machines for almost 80 years. Nearly 2000 machines have been produced by Streicher and are distributed in more than 70 countries.
Over the years, there has been a variety of different tapping machines, both bent shank (over tapping) and reversing style. Today, the primary nut tapping machines we are making is a series of two
Eliminating the speed and feed variable in tapping machines has proven advantages. The primary gain is the ability to run at much higher speeds and still maintain the best thread quality. The tap life can still be as good as in machines that run at half the speed.
Many machines out there have no measurable way to set the feed advance for
The latest machines available from Streicher Maschinenbau have removed this variable from the equation. The predecessor to the Top Cut was the Thread Star, which had precise angularity in the clamping carriage. However, the Thread Star was not able to achieve the speed of a machine with mechanically controlled feed. Newer Top Cut machines can also have the same angularity with precision feed and speed relationship of cams.
Precision with Flexibility
Additionally, Streicher Maschinenbau has seen through feedback from its customers, that demands change. Planning to purchase equipment based on specific parts is a big decision. It is great to gear up for something and then run it for 10 years or longer. However, many unexpected things happen, customer demands can change, pricing changes or a better opportunity comes along. Whatever it may be, Streicher has designed its machines to provide their users with the widest range of capabilities.
The Top Cut two spindle bent shank tapper series has three machine sizes. Two machines cover the range of M5 to M33. The Top Cut 16 covers M5 to M16 and the Top Cut 33 covers M16 to M33.
The smaller Top Cut 10 was engineered to accommodate operations focusing on M10 and smaller. Furthermore, these machines can tap hex, flange, square, round and conical shaped nuts.
