Success prevails


Until now,  KOMET®  only supplied HSS taps with carbide strips as special tools for demanding customer requirements. They are now available with the designation  KOMET  JEL®  GG HML ex stock and in the sizes M6 to M12 as standard in the catalogue.

The taps with carbide strips combine the benefits of a flexible HSS shank with the advantages of a hard cutting edge. They can thus compensate for slight alignment faults and, at the same time, achieve long tool life. The  KOMET  JEL®  GG HML taps are achieving particularly good results in machining grey cast iron (GG) and vermicular cast iron (GJV). When used in practice on machining centres and on transfer lines, a considerable tool life of up to 75,000 threads could be achieved with this highly abrasive material which is used for the production of diesel engines, for example. This ultimately results in fewer machine downtimes. The  KOMET  JEL®  GG HML is therefore the ideal tool for efficient thread production with process reliability.
