Cutting Tools For Job Shop Applications 

The XPF & S-XPF represent a new evolution in forming tap technology. These form taps generate up to 50% less torque versus other forming taps, making it feasible to tap materials up to 40 HRC and sizes up to or exceeding 1" in diameter.


  • Fluteless Forming Tap
  • 40-50% less machining torque
  • Coolant-fed version also available (S-XPF)
  • DIN Overall Length
  • Produces no chips, making it up to 17X more durable than cut taps.
  • Longer life at faster speeds and the ability to use larger forming taps.
  • For those with coolant-fed spindles, even more performance can be achieved.
  • Additional length provides greater reach capabilities.


  • Aluminum Alloy, Cast Aluminum, Carbon Steels, Alloy Steel, Die Steel, Stainless Steel, Hardened Steel < 40 HRC.
  • Higher performance with XPF is achieved when running at higher SFM.
  • Forming is possible in Nickel Alloys such as Inconel 718 for thread sizes under 1/4".
