Tapping machines, when used correctly, can save a lot of time and labor in completing many types of projects. These machines help add threads to a hole so that screws or bolts can be used in it. It is similar to a tap and die, but requires less effort. These machines are central to the manufacturing process for products made of metal.
Uses for a Tapping Machine
These machines are used in a variety of manufacturing endeavors. Basically anything that involves fastening two pieces of metal together can use tapping machines or a tap and die. Auto parts, heavy machinery, electronics and many other manufactured pieces can use a threaded hole from a tapping device. Tapping machines can be part of a CNC device in some precision manufacturing applications.
