Drilling and Tapping
Drilling and tapping of plastics is similar to the processes used for wood and metals.
In drilling plastics, the primary difference is that plastic drill bits typically have sharper points and different rake angles than bits for other materials. To prevent meltingduring drilling, Midland adjusts drill-and-feed speeds according to the material being used
Tapping is simply the process of putting threads in a pre-drilled hole. To ensure that the threads are straight and clean, Midland uses special tapping heads.
