ISO 50 tapers are machine tools that function with the cutting spindle of a machine. The ISO 50 is the largest of three tapers, with the ISO 30 as the smallest followed by the ISO 40. According to the National Machine Tool Builders' Association, an ISO 50 taper may be classified as a Quick Change, NMTB, National Standard, MM or an American Standard Machine Taper. In addition, ISO 50 tapers are interchangeable with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) units.
The maximum diameter (D) of the outside of a Taper ISO-50 is 69.85 mm. The opposite end or inside diameter (D1) measures 39.6 mm and the collar diameter is 101.6 mm.
