News & Announcements

In this section we inform you about new developments, exhibition and more.


The microtap founder Klaus Maximilian Müller will give a speech at the 2015 STLE Tribology Frontiers Conference, October 25-27, 2015 in Grand Hyatt Denver, Denver, Colorado.


Tapping Torque Technology System: Visualize the Effectiveness and Lubricity of Lubricant Formulations


Lubricant Efficiency
Based on a torque-controlled and process secured thread tapping machine (process security avoids tool breakage and pressure differences in the ground hole), complemented with a specialized evaluation and analysis software, the Tapping Torque Technology visualizes the effectiveness of lubricating media. The system depicts decisive process-parameters (*) during forming and machining and allows for a reliable prediction about the performance capability of metal working fluids (coolants) and optimized tool geometries and tool coatings.

(*) Torque as a coefficient for the factually generated work performance (Torque Mz Ncm), 
Mean Value as a coefficient for the generated work performance in average (arithmetic mean).
Standard Deviation as a coefficient for the mean deviation of torque around the Mean Value.
Gaussian Curvature shows the frequency distribution of the number of the various torques during process
Integral as a coefficient for the total stress (wear) on the measurement tool 
Temperature ∆T as an indicator for the tribological mechanisms of action.

OilDoc Conference and Exhibition in Rosenheim near Munich is the trend-setting event for lubrication, maintenance and tribology. 


At the thrid conference day, 29th January 2015, at 13:00 Uhr will be a presentation given by Klaus Maximilian Müller, the CEO of the microtap GmbH. The topic is "The TTT Tapping-Torque-Testsystem for the determination and interpretation of evaluation-parameters of tribological effects of substances, ingredients and elements in lubricants"

We are looking forward to your active participation and your feedback. Visit us at Booth No. 14.

Update: Presentation slides and transcript are availible upon request.
