The FLEXTAPPER is designed for the cutting of threads with robot.
The tap can be inserted without problems in bores due to the floating chuck.
The floating chuck can compensate radial and angular misplacement errors between tapping hole and tap axis when inserting the tools.
The FLEXTAPPER 110 can be used for tapping in through holes of any length. The FLEXTAPPER 110 can be used for tapping in through holes of any length. Two sensors permit the monitoring of the machining operation.
The FLEXTAPPER 120 can be used for tapping in through and blind holes. The maximal axial offset is 10 mm. If the tapping depth is larger than the maximal axial offset then this must be carried out in several stages. Two sensors permit the monitoring of the machining operation.
The tool can either be mounted stationary onto a tool stand (Toolstand) or onto the robot arm. If these tools at the robot have to be changed automatically, a tool changer (Changing Systems) is available.
To assure an optimal life of the air motors the compressed air must be cleaned and lubricated.
