Automated Tapping Systems
Automated Tapping Systems is the only In-Die Tapping Unit manufacturer with over 45 years’ experience and built in the USA! From our inception ATS has been the worldwide leader in In-Die tapping technologies. From our original of TH21 series, TH31 and TH41 units, through the redesigned TH25, TH35 and TH45 series and now the SV45, SV55 and SV65 series servo driven units, ATS has always been first through Innovation not imitation.
Our direct line engineering and manufacturing approach allows us the build custom tapping units in weeks rather than months. All ATS tapping units come with complimentary die review. ATS engineers are available forWebEx meetings at your convenience.
The following is a list of the ATS innovations:
