Manual Tang Break Tools
These are used for breaking-off the tang in a Screw Thread
Insert after installation of the same in a tapped hole.This
is easily accomplished by placing the punch of the Tang Break-off
Tool into the installed insert and resting tool squarely on
the insert tang. Striking the top of the tool with a hammer,
using a sharp blow breaks off the tang.
Semi-Automatic Tang Break Tools
This Tool has a spring loaded sleeve which actuates the punch
causing it to strike a uniform blow against the tang in the
assembled insert. The operation of this tool is single handed
(as against manual tang break-off tool requiring both hands)
and excludes the use of a hammer.These are suitable for inserts
ranging from M2 to M10 or equivalent inch sizes.
