Thread tapping in aluminum, also known as screw threading in aluminum, is the process of creating a screw thread in aluminum so that a screw can be inserted into the metal. This aluminum tapping is usually done by first drilling a hole with a smaller diameter in the metal, followed by cutting the screw thread into the drilled hole.
Thread tapping in aluminum can be done in two ways: cutting or rolling. Rolling does not produce chips. Cutting is a better option when the material is too brittle. We would be happy to advise you on the best method for your product.
We can perform thread tapping in aluminum for you using a special drilling machine or tapping machine. This speeds up the process, but it is essential to ensure that the tap is perpendicular to the workpiece, and when dealing with thicker materials, always use a lubricant.
In addition, when tapping aluminium, it is important to take galvanic corrosion into account. There must be good insulation between the aluminium and stainless steel.
Tapping wire in aluminium is fine, as aluminium is a soft material, provided the above conditions are met.
