FAQ

I MUST WORK SOME PARTICULARLY TENACIOUS MATERIALS, CAN I USE YOUR TAP ADAPTERS?

Yes! A different calibration value is requested in respect to the standard one, suitable for works on steel. It’s therefore necessary to calibrate again the adapter in order to avoid the continuous use of the clutch to allow the attainment of the desired tapping quote.

CAN I USE THE SAME TAP ADAPTER WITH CLUTCH FOR EVERY TAPS?

No, each tap needs the related tap adapter. The adapters are calibrated not to exceed the tap torque. Moreover each tap has different diameter and square.

WHY DOES THE COMPENSATION IN EXTENTION IS BLOCKED?

The screw that keeps the cage has broken: you exceeded the maximum compensation.

WHICH KIND OF TAPPING CHUCK DO YOU ADVISE ME?

Which are the features of your machine? Which kind of material do you work? SCM offers you a clear and wide offer. Go in the related area and you will find the right solution, by sure

I HAVE TO TAP M8, WHICH TAPPING CHUCK I HAVE TO USE? THE 32400 SERIES OR THE 32600?

Even if both of them can tap M8, we advise you to use the 32400 series because being this diameter in the middle of its tapping range, the degree of sensitivity of the compensation is higher.

WHY DOES THE TAPPING CHUCK USE ITS WHOLE COMPENSATION IN COMPRESSION?

You are probably tapping a tenacious material so that the tap needs an highest entry pressure in respect to the standard one. You can make up for this lack, working on the screw placed on the lateral side of the chuck, to harden this pressure.

CAN I AUGMENT THE HARDENING OF THE COMPRESSION OF THE TAPPING CHUCKS WITH AXIAL COMPENSATION?

Yes, you can! Just work on the screw placed on the lateral side of the chuck (as per instruction included in the box)

I HAVE A TRADITIONAL MACHINE WITHOUT CNC, WHICH TAPPING CHUCK DO YOU ADVISE ME?

The series 10000 that besides doing perfect threads, it can also be used for drilling and flaring. An indispensable help for those who must make those operations rapidly with machines without automatic tool changer.

I HAVE A MACHINE FOR THE RIGID SYNCHRONISED TAPPING, WHICH TAPPING CHUCK DO YOU ADVISE ME?

The series 23000: the SYNCROLIZE tapping chuck. Thanks to a micro compensation of 1 mm in extension and 0,2 in compression you will triple your tool life!

DOES THE REVERSAL TAPPING CHUCK HAVE THE COMPENSATION?

No, it doesn’t.

ARE THE SCM TAP ADAPTERS INTERCHANGEABLE WITH THOSE OF THE OTHER MANUFACTURERS?

Yes, they are.

ARE THE TRADITIONAL TAP ADAPTERS INTERCHANGEABLE WITH THOSE OF THE SYNCROLIZE TAPPING CHUCK?

No, they are two different types of bushes.

ARE THE SCM TAP ADAPTERS MANUFACTURED FOR THE LUBRICATION TROUGH THE TAP?

Every SCM tap adapter is manufactured for the lubrication trough the tap. On request it’s possible to have bushes with the coolant flow on the tool side.

DO YOU HAVE EXTENDED BUSHES WITH/WITHOUT CLUTCH?

Of course, we do! It’s possible to obtain modular extended bushes with a minimum length of 70mm increased of multiple of 25 mm.

CAN I USE THE SAME TAP ADAPTER FOR LEFT TAPPING AND RIGHT TAPPING?

Tap adapter without clutch? Yes, you can! Tap adapter with clutch: no, you can’t! In the standard bush with clutch, the clutch springs in the right-handed way. If you need a tap adapter for left tapping, you must ask precisely for this.

WHY DOES IN THE SERIES 32900 THE TAP ADAPTER RELEASE IN EXTENSION?

The tapping chucks belonging to the series 32800 and 32900 have been thought with the quick change of the adapter at the end of the compression for an easier extraction and besides to avoid that, exceeding the compression during the working process, neither the tap nor the chuck will break.

WHICH CHUCK DO YOU ADVISE FOR A BIG THREAD?

The Series 10000: a quick change chuck for drilling and tapping provided with a tap protection device for preadjustable torques and suitable for drills, boring machines, lathes… able to tap up to M80 standard thread or M300 fine thread.

USING THE SERIE 10000, IT’S NECESSARY TO CHANGE THE CHUCK TO OBTAIN DIFFERENT DIAMETERS OF TAPPING?

No, for every tap size it is provided a bush already prearranged and tested for appropriate torque sufficient for tapping any material.

WHICH CHUCK DO YOU ADVISE FOR HOLES AND THREADS OF DIFFERENT SIZES ON HEAVY WORKPIECES THAT ARE MACHINED ON RADIAL DRILLS AND BORING MACHINES?

The series 10000: quick change chuck for drilling and tapping with a tap protection device for preadjustable torques and suitable for drills, boring machines, lathes. The distinctive feature of this chuck is to allow rapid changing from drilling to tapping works on different diameters by changing only the bush without requiring further adjustment or checking.

WHICH KIND OF TAP ADAPTER I HAVE TO USE WHEN I TAP A THROUGH HOLE?

Being the risk of breaking the tap very low we advise you to use indifferently the bush with clutch or the bush without clutch.

WHICH KIND OF TAP ADAPTER I HAVE TO USE WHEN I TAP A BLIND HOLE?

To avoid the risk of breaking the tap, we advise you to use the bush with clutch

DO YOU DO THE MAINTENANCE ON YOUR PRODUCTS?

Sure! Our technicians will do all the necessary inspective controls on the product and they will send you a quotation. The service will be done just after your acceptance.

ARE THE BALLS OF YOUR CHUCK BROKEN?

You have exceeded the tensile strength of the tap adapter.

WHY DOES THE CAGE UNTHREAD FROM ITS SEAT?

The screw that keeps the cage has broken: you exceeded the maximum compensation.

I’M WORKING ALUMINIUM AND I HAVE NOTICED THAT THE THREAD IS OUT OF TOLLERANCE (WIDER), WHY?

Aluminium is a difficult material and a bad chips evacuation can cause this inconvenient. We advise you to use the series 36000 with coolant flows inside the tap. This will help the evacuation of the chips and to obtain threads in tolerance.

I MUST DO DEEP THREADS AND I HAVE DIFFICULTIES IN EVACUATING THE CHIP, WHICH KIND OF CHUCK I HAVE TO USE?

Series 36000: it guarantees an axial compensation in extension and compression very sensitive and fluent also during the coolant flows inside that helps the chips evacuation

I HAVE JUST BOUGHT A CNC MACHINE WITH THE RIGID SYNCHRONISED TAPPPING, IT’S BETTER USING THE SYNCROLIZE OR A COLLET CHUCKS?

We advise you to use the SYNCROLIZE tapping chuck: series 23000. Thanks to its micro compensation of 1 mm in extension and 0,2 in compression you can triple your tool life.

WHICH KIND OF TAPPING CHUCK I HAVE TO USE WITH THR FORMING TAPS?

Series 32000: tapping chuck with axial compensation and tap adapter with clutch with a calibration increased at least by 30%. Series 23400: SYNCROLIZE tapping chuck M3-M10 Series 23600: SYNCROLIZE tapping chuck M12-M18
