CNC Lathe Automatic Tap Oiler

Whenever we are running pipe taps and certain other threads we find that we get best results with tapping oil rather than coolant. Whenever we needed to apply tapping oil, we had to incorporate a stop within our G-code program to manually apply the oil. This drastically slows down the machining process and the number of quality parts that we can manufacture in a given time period so we came up with this fix.

This is our automatic tap oiler in our Haas ST lathe. Yes that is a hamster bottle...

  1. I never get machinery. I believe it is not my cup of tea. Although, this video was very helpful and valuable. Thank you for sharing.
