Tapping is an easy, well-known, and highly efficient manufacturing process. This method provides productive and economical threading, especially for small threads, through reduced machine downtime, high cutting speed and long tool life. Forming pipes and cutting pipes come in different designs. Tapping covers the most common thread profiles and is suitable for all machine types with rotating and non-rotating components.

Tapping is the process of cutting threads on the inner surface of a drilled hole. This is achieved using a special tool called a tube. It is necessary to tap the hole to develop the full strength of the connecting Screw or bolt. This process can be used to create threads in new holes as well as create threads on the inner surface of nuts.
