The HY unit is the smallest and most compact of our In-Die Tapping tools. The HY1024 is an economical solution for tapping downward in a hydraulic press. Since the HY1024 is not cam actuated, the press controls the acceleration and tap speed. The HY1024 will tap sizes #0-#10 or up to M5. It typically runs at production rates between 60-100 strokes per minute (SPM) up to a maximum 200 SPM, depending on strip material, thickness, tap size and tap pitch.
By utilizing multiple tools in place of one special tapping tool, you can control flexibility in the stamping operation and greatly reduce downtime due to unscheduled maintenance.
