Tapping into action – AMB 2022

Yamawa Europe, the European branch of the Japanese manufacturer of threading solutions, will be attending AMB 2022 in Stuttgart with its latest rotary tools.

In recent years Yamawa has developed many products that it says have become a technical benchmark for tapping in Europe in many industrial fields.

Among the highlights will be the VU series, the new family of taps designed to allow optimum performance with modern machining centres. The series includes new types such as the VUSP CH with an internal coolant hole or the VUSP 1.5P for blind holes with a chamfer length of 1.5 pitches. These two new products add to the VUSP (for blind holes) and the VUPO (for through holes) which have already gained significant success across Europe.

Moreover, Yamawa proposes the HVSP taps for large forged parts in the metalworking industry, which have solved the problem of breakage common with large hole threading. Additionally, there are MH taps especially designed for medium-high hardness steel and an excellent solution in the automotive industry in which these types of material are commonly used. The MH family includes MHSP for blind holes, MHSL for through holes and the MHRZ forming taps.

As usual at the Yamawa Europe stand, particular attention will be given to material specific solutions, such as the recently introduced GG taps for cast iron and abrasive materials.

Alessandro Sorgato, CEO of Yamawa Europe comments: “Within the framework of an important exhibition like AMB, we invite users to learn all about the Yamawa portfolio and we’ll do our best to help them find the solutions needed to match their production needs.”

The threading specialist’s catalogue introduced last year, contains a complete offer of threading solutions targeted at the European market. With more than 9,000 product items and a large portion of technical information, it is one of the most complete catalogues for threading.

Alongside the catalogue, the Tool Finder app is always up to date, helping users to quickly find the most suitable product and containing interesting practical features that make Yamawa experience more immersive.

Headquartered in Tokyo, Yamawa is a world leader in threading tools manufacturing with four highly specialised factories all located in Japan.

With a monthly production capacity of over 1,600,000 taps since its foundation in 1923, Yamawa differentiates itself by focusing entirely on threading solutions, massive R&D investments and excellent quality control process, built over a rigorously defined protocol including triple quality control on 100% of production.

Yamawa threading solutions are known worldwide for their excellent quality and precision resulting in customers’ overall lower cost per thread and reliability of production processes.

In January 2016, Yamawa launched Yamawa Europe, based in Venezia-Mestre (Italy) in order to make the whole Yamawa product range and industry expertise more readily available to customers in Europe.

Give it a whirl

Tooling manufacturer Horn has introduced tools for thread whirling, having six or nine inserts, providing an efficient, cost-effective way to produce single- and multi-start external threads and profiles. Very short cycle times are achievable when they are used on sliding-head (Swiss-type) lathes and the process offers other significant advantages over single-point thread cutting.
