    The degree is better and can withstand greater cutting force. The effect of processing non-ferrous metals, stainless steel, and ferrous metals is very good, and the apex taps should be preferentially used for through-hole threads.

    The most versatile, the cutting cone part can have 2, 4, 6 teeth, short taps are used for non-through holes, long taps are used through hole. As long as the bottom hole is deep enough, the cutting cone should be as long as possible, so that more teeth will share the cutting load and the service life will be longer.

    Due to the helix angle, the actual cutting rake angle of the tap will increase as the helix angle increases. Experience tells us: For processing ferrous metals, the helix angle should be smaller, generally around 30 degrees, to ensure the strength of the helical teeth and help extend the life of the tap. For processing non-ferrous metals such as copper, aluminum, magnesium, and zinc, the helix angle should be larger, which can be around 45 degrees, and the cutting is sharper, which is good for chip removal.
