Parlec features the largest range of tapping solutions, including rigid, tension only, and tension and compression systems along with coolant and coolant groove adapters.  

Torque control tapping is the best solution for protecting taps and work pieces from tap breakage. Bottom tapping or close blind hole tapping where ship evacuation is a common concern, are prime operations for torque control tapping. Available from #4 to 1/4", (0-80 in. lb.)
