Plastic tapping is a machining process done to create threads on a screw hole so that a bolt can be fitted onto it. Tapping is completed using CNC machining and is done in conjuncture with plastic drilling. After a hole is drilled in a plastic component, it can be tapped to create threads in the hole.
