Taps are used to cut screw threads on the internal surfaces of holes, creating the “female” half (nut) of the screw.

High precision is of vital importance, particularly in areas such as automotive engines, which require precision screws.

OSG offers a lineup of taps with diameters in various sizes and with specifications suitable for a wide variety of uses.
