Please join us on a tour of Balax, Inc. on April 19th at 10 AM.  Balax, Inc. is a privately held corporation located near Milwaukee in North Lake, Wisconsin. Founded in 1958, Balax pioneered a design for cold forming taps featuring "Lead Form Geometry Correction", a process which reduces tapping torque by creating lead threads on pitch. The new taps, called Thredfloers, were said to be "BALanced AXially", giving rise to the company's name, BALAX. Thredfloer Taps, with their low torque capabilities, soon found acceptance among US manufacturers across the country. Balax has since added other metalworking tools to its product line, including Thredshaver Cutting Taps, and Thread Gages.
All manufacturing processes are done in house at Balax, including blank making, heat treating, shank and square grinding, fluting, thread grinding and surface treatments. Balax also maintains a fully equipped tapping laboratory to test new design concepts for tapping torque, tapping speed, tool geometry, coolant or lubrication performance, pretap hole sizing, and material compatibility.

For five (5) decades, Balax Inc, has been designing and manufacturing quality Thredfloer Cold Forming Taps and Thredshaver Cutting Taps in North Lake, Wisconsin and operates its factory three shifts, five days a week in order to provide prompt delivery
