Yamawa will present their new range of Z-Pro taps at this year's EMO. The taps are said to be suitable for both mass production and small batches.

VUSP (spiral fluted taps for blind holes) and VUPO (spiral pointed taps for through holes) are designed to deliver top performances both in mass production and small batches applications, without jeopardising performance, reliability and quality.

“In the current production scenario, flexibility is the key that helps our clients dealing with different requests quickly while ensuring the utmost quality,” said Alessandro Sorgato, CEO of Yamawa Europe. “Our new VUSP and VUPO taps of the Z-Pro range, designed to be used in modern multi-function machining centres, allow our clients to obtain the highest performance on different materials, such as steel, carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel and aluminium.”

VUSP and VUPO taps are developed to obtain continuous and reliable tapping, as well as to extend significantly the tool life thanks to exceptional chip evacuation. The new taps feature a flute design allowing chip control and lower cutting forces resulting in great finishing quality of the internal threads.

The Z-Pro line enriches the portfolio of taps and threading tools. Yamawa has a production capacity of 1,600,000 tools per month in 4 plants in Japan. Every tap that leaves the factory undergoes a triple quality check, according to the company.

In the past few weeks, the Japanese company has inaugurated the Yamawa Academy in Mestre (Venice, Italy). “The Academy is a fully-equipped space that allows us to train our clients from both a theoretical and practical point of view,” said Alessandro Sorgato. “Besides the new high-tech training room, which can accommodate up to 40 people, we have added a new workshop equipped to perform practical exercises and tapping tests. This area will allow our customers to verify directly various aspects, including the impact on threads quality and chip control when varying parameters such as cutting geometry, diameter variation of the bored hole, cutting speed variation and the different behaviour based on the processed materials.”

Yamawa will showcase its products at EMO, Hall 5, Stand B34.
