Walter Prototyp Prototex® HSC are high-performance solid carbide taps for through hole threads in steel materials. The special micrograin carbide provides extremely good wear resistance, cutting edge strength and maximum toughness. These are highly cost-effective tools for producing excellent threads in modern manufacturing operations.

Facts and advantages:

  • excellent concentricity (concentricity less than 10 µm)
  • increased number of flutes and TiCN coating for very long tool life
  • with cooling grooves on the shank for optimum coolant supply
  • minimum production costs per thread thanks to 3-times higher cutting speeds in comparison to HSS-E taps
  • fewer tool changes and optimum machine output resulting from significantly longer tool life
