Founded in 1920 by Richard Glimpel and dedicated to craftsmanship, innovation and quality, Emuge has grown continuously since it invented the spiral point tap in 1921. Numerous innovations and patents have been credited to Emuge over the past 100 years and that innovative spirit continues. By maintaining the strictest material quality standards, operating the most advanced grinding equipment, holding the tightest manufacturing tolerances, and continually investing in research & new product development, Emuge is the benchmark by which all others aspire to.

Cutting Tools


No matter the thread style, the material type or the thread designation, there is a good chance that you will find a standard product option from Emuge. Production facilities based in Germany produce high speed steel, powdered metal, and carbide taps to exacting tolerances. Our manufacturing capabilities are enhanced with in-house PVD coating chambers which apply proprietary surface treatments that enhance the tools performance. A state-of-the-art research and development department is continually working on new and innovative designs. Innovative products, in combination with a dedicated team of skilled employees, comprise the most comprehensive and technologically advanced thread and cutting tool product line in the world.


Drilled holes that are consistent and in the precise location will inevitably improve the quality of the thread that is generated by a tap or thread mill. Emuge offers a complete line of Carbide High Penetration Rate drills designed especially to produce the roundest, most accurate holes, improving the quality of any subsequent threading process. In addition, the EF-C step drill program offers a complete array of coolant fed carbide step drills with the proper diameters for most cut and form tap sizes, from stock or with a quick delivery option.
