Tap and die sets serve many industrial and manufacturing purposes. Both taps and dies are used to create screw threads. Some sets are used as cutting tools, and others to form the threads. Taps cut or form the female of a mating pair or nut, while the die cuts or forms the male, or bolt. Tapping is the tap-process of cutting or forming threads, and the die-process is called threading. Using tap and die sets to clean threads, is called chasing. These adaptable tools are key to quality control across numerous industries.
