Description / Qualities

By using the combination of Bilz tapping adaptors and Bilz quick change tapping chucks, tool changing times can be minimized. On transfer lines and special application machines where down time costs are high, these efficiencies represent significant savings. The adaptors are designed for optimum efficiency. Removal and replacement in the chuck is rapid and the location and locking of the tap in the adaptor is simple and effective. In all cases the drive of the tap is realised by the square. The tap shank is held in position by a quick locking mechanism.

Adaptors with length adjustment are available for setting off the machine, extended length adaptors are available for areas of difficult access, adjustable safety clutch adaptor, facilitates the avoidance of tap breakage. In all cases, a different adaptor is required for each size of tap shank. Adaptors for other applications, such as those for accepting collets, and dies for external threads or for increased shank or reduction facility complete this product family.
