Tap and die holders are used on production machines like single-spindle lathes, multi-spindle lathes, NC machines, cnc milling machines, drills and transfer machines. They are used for all the operations of thread and greatly improve tool life preventing frequent breaks. The part of the equipment on which is mounted the tap/die can slide axially due to inner springs and also has a slight radial play respect to the part that is mounted in the machine tool. The axial floating given by the internal springs is very important in the processing phase in which the sense of rotation of the tap/die is inverted. Moreover the axial and radial free moving allows tap to follow the existing drilled hole for high quality work.
