Lindsay Machine Works, Inc. has owned a FlexArm for 15 years. They recently purchased a hydraulic arm to handle larger tap capacities. See how many holes they can tap with the FlexArm in the same time it takes to hand tap one hole. See what they had to say about the FlexArm “Around 15 years
Solid Design Enterprises is a company that manufactures aerospace components. See how they were able to speed up their processes by tapping offline with the FlexArm while the Haas CNC machines other parts. If you’re looking to speed up your tapping operations contact us or click here for more information
See how one manufacturer will increase productivity by using a FlexArm instead of their CNC to tap aluminum extrusions in a matter of seconds.
See how a hydraulic tapping arm compares to a pnuematic tapping arm when tapping 1/2" and 3/4" holes into 2" thick aluminum.
Watch the video of this application at the bottom of the page. An end user out of Trotwood, Ohio recently reached out to us because they wanted an efficient way to tap consistent NPT threads. They sent in some of their materials so we could see how the FlexArm would perform on their parts. They
See why this facade contractor will be using a FlexArm instead of a drill press to tap their aluminum extrusions quicker and more efficiently.
Watch a GHM-60 Hydraulic FlexArm easily tap 1 1/4" holes in heat-treated alloy steel both vertically and horizontally with the multi-position head.
A prospect reached out to us because they were interested in trying out one of our tapping arms. PowerBuilt Material Handling Solutions, out of Bellefontaine, Ohio, recently purchased an OMAX waterjet, but they were stuck manually tapping and chamfering each of the waterjet holes. PowerBuilt was looking to speed up this process, so they came
Eliminate extra time spent external threading by hand or in the lathe with a FlexArm solution that guarantees perpendicularity and precise accuracy.
A potential customer wanted to know whether or not a FlexArm tapping arm could tap some laser-cut holes in stainless steel, so they sent in their parts for us to perform a tap test. As you can tell, the GH-18 Hydraulic FlexArm had no problem with these holes.
A prospect was looking to free up their 5-axis machines by tapping offline. They are tapping into aluminum with a 7/8" full torque tap, while also tapping at 10.5- and 15-degree angles.
FlexArm offers two main types of tapping arms: pneumatic and hydraulic-driven. But the question is, which one is better? Well, it depends on your situation.
Finding the best and most efficient solution to thread T-Nuts to help with TE-CO's manufacturing process.
We had a customer send in some nuts for us to tap, so we put the GH-60 Hydraulic FlexArm tapping solution to the test.
See how much time we saved by thread milling 6 M30 holes instead of thread milling them in the conventional CNC.
See how more efficient your shop can be by tapping offline instead of thread milling. By tapping offline with a FlexArm tapping solution, you can tap faster, get more parts through your shop, and put your operators to work.
Joe performed a tap test for a potential client using a 3/4″ tap on a plastic drip tray for an industrial size air condition unit. With a custom tap holder and the auto depth stop, the A-32 Pneumatic was able to get the job done, but the GH-18 Hydraulic would be able to give you
