Tapping at Kroon Metal Technology
Cutting threads inside a drilled hole is called tapping. Kroon Metal Technology can quickly and professionally cut threads into drilled holes. We can do this mechanically using our advanced CNC machines or do it manually.
When the sheet metal is too thin to cut a thread, it is possible to drill the product with the aid of a flow drill. This procedure is called flow-drilling. Because of the heat generated during drilling, the metal sheet starts to soften in the direction of the drill and deforms it plastically. In the process a bulge is created through which makes it possible to use screws and bolts for the attachment of the sheet.
Besides tapping we can offer you more services in the fields of metalworking, such as drilling, turning, milling, bending, laser cutting and welding.
