All-in-One Hydraulic Tapping Arm Packages



FlexArm Inc, will feature a mobile tapping package that allows operators to tap holes offline while the machining center works on the next part.

This comprehensive package includes the FlexArm GH-18 tapping arm with a tap capacity of #6 to 5/8", a reach from 17"-72", variable speed from 100-420 RPM, 360° movement and a semi-automatic tap lubricator. Additionally, with a caster cart, power pack, tap stand and five tap holders, this hydraulic tool can be used wherever there is 110V available - with no air needed. With fast set-up times and reduced tap breakage, FlexArm tapping arms are a suitable alternative to tapping holes manually or via CNC.

"FlexArm provides a more efficient way to tap holes. It allows machining centers to do what they do best - milling, drilling and boring. When operators load a machining center and start its cycle, they can use that cycle time to tap previously machined parts with the FlexArm - yielding more productivity per shift. Tap breakage rates are reduced with the FlexArm due to its purpose-centered approach. With a tap breakage rate of 1 per 3,000 holes, versus 1 per 300 holes on a CNC, FlexArm tapping arms can reduce set-up time, cost and scrap rates," said a company spokesperson.

In addition to the GH-18 model detailed above, other hydraulic and pneumatic versions of the FlexArm are available to suit varied tapping requirements. Engineers are available to discuss unique project parameters and offer solutions. FlexArm stocks an extensive array of tap holders and repair parts in its Wapakoneta factory for fast shipment.
