Our sheet metal tapping service

Utilizing specialized, automated equipment, we precisely laser-cut a hole, create some threading, and send you on your way with your completed part.

Just like with CNC routing and bending, we have expertly trained staff members (and robots) that focus on just this process alone. This ensures one of our most important values is realized: “Always getting someone behind your work that knows what they’re doing.”
