- In-Die Tapping offers many advantages for stamped parts
In-Die Tapping is an embedded operation that offers many advantages including a significant reduction in costs. But it is also quite complex and requires good skills to perfectly manage it. What is the reason for a succesfull and mastered of In-Die Tapping solutions?
The process of In-Die Tapping can be cutted as following:
For optimum performance, the process of In-Die Tapping can be described as follows :
- Feeding the part to the tapping station (progressive tool or transfer)
- Clamp the part (pilot punches or clamping)
- Lubricate the tap and the tapping hole
- Tapping the stripped part (tap travel to and from the tap)
- Release the part
By following some important points, it is possible to get the In-Die Tapping process efficient, reliable and very economical.
Forming threading generates very high stresses at the tap-work contact. Therefore, it is necessary to take care to all the parameters that are essential for the smooth running of the process. These points are going from the diameter before tapping to the piloting of the tap by a cartridge system, including lubrication, forming speed, tap quality, etc.
This operation under press, in masked time, makes it possible to obtain a finished part at the speed of the press. Therefor, no needs to get parts threaded as secondary operation.
