Down to the Basics: Tapping.
Over the next couple weeks, we’re going to go over the six, basic machine processes that go into making our parts; Turning, Hobbing, Milling, Tapping, Boring, Parting, and Broaching.
Although there are numerous post-production steps that go into finishing a Profile Racing part, this is where it starts.
Up Fifth: Tapping.
Tapping is done on any of our machines.
Everything that needs a hole, needs to be drilled; which is 60 – 70% of Profile’s product.
Tapping in house is done two different ways:
- In our lathes, the part turns and the tool is stationary.
- In our mills, the tool turns and the part is stationary.
The Titanium spindles above are tapped on our lathes.
