EXOPRO® XPF-OIL Taps (16050)

Premium High Performance Form Taps for Materials up to 40 HRC!


The EXOPRO® 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

Produces no chips, making it up to 17X more durable than cut taps.

40-50% less machining torque

Longer life at faster speeds and the ability to use larger forming taps.

Coolant-fed version also available (S-XPF)

For those with coolant-fed spindles, even more performance can be achieved.

DIN Overall Length

Additional length provides greater reach capabilities.

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".



Additional Information

When grinding or regrinding industrial cutting tools, residual grinding dust may occur. This dust may contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
