For unsurpassed performance, INNOFORM-STEEL-M Taps feature innovative polygon geometry for low torque and longer life.

Inch taps are available in UNC and UNF thread sizes, feature 2BX class of fit and DIN length and ANSI shanks, while metric taps feature coarse and fine thread sizes with 6HX class of fit, and DIN length and DIN shanks.
