In-Die Tapping

Units (FTU)

FIBRO In-Die Tapping Units can therefore be utilised in a broad spectrum of applications. ▶ FIBRO 2 subject to alteration . And by selecting the right components for the job. FIBRO In-Die Tapping Units can produce threads up to M16. Below: Sample parts Pricing & Delivery Times: On request Threads are cold formed. A sophisticated design and the use of robust parts guarantee a long life cycle and production reliability of all FIBRO In-Die Tapping Units. Right: Five FTUs with 14 chucking heads in one progressive die. not cut. 2298. The modular design of these FIBRO In-Die Tapping Units with flexible components allows a custom adaptation to any tooling situation. Furthermore. Advantages of FIBRO In-Die Tapping Units:  no additional processes required for threading  modular. one or more threads can be tooled simultaneously at angles other than 90°. Cold formed threads are more durable than cut threads. flexible design  Threads can be produced in any angle position  Several threads produced simultaneously  Robust and safe mechanical solution Examples for Application (see below): Left: Two FTUs in one progressive die. All of the basic components are quickly and easily removed and can be reused in other tools. This avoids additional expensive processes outside the die tool. which eliminates swarf.In-Die Tapping Units FIBRO In-Die Tapping Units allow the production of threads in a progressive die. as the grain structure of the material is not interrupted. stroke rates of up to 200 strokes/min (depending on thread diameter) can be achieved.

3 x M3. 1 x M8* FTU 30P for threads M6 to M8 reinforced 3 x M5. 2 x M6. 1 x M16* Multiple Tapping: By adding more gearwheels and chucking heads.threads can be formed simultaneously (or with the next cycle) in one single FTU. The type table provided contains recommended values for max. several . the press stroke is transformed via the toothed rack and drive unit into a rotational movement. 2 x M10. 3 x M4* FTU 20 for threads M5 to M6 2 x M5.
