Welcome to Automated Tapping Systems

For over 25 years, Automated Tapping Systems' sole business has been designing and building quality In-Die Tapping Units, for the Metal Stamping Industry. ATS was the first to produce a commercial In-Die Tapping Unit and continues to lead the industry, in service and engineering expertise. Our Direct Line Engineering and Manufacturing approach allows ATS to design, and build custom Tapping Units in week, rather than months.

Our goal at ATS is customer satisfaction from initial contact through designing and final production. We still provide the same courteous service to our new customers worldwide, as we have to our existing customers for over twenty-five years.

In-Die Tapping

"In-Die" tapping heads for tapping in progressive dies on a punch press. Our tapping heads can cover a wide tapping range from #2-56 to 1-1/4"-12 or metric equivalent. We can also provide tapping heads for tapping multi-spindle hole patterns as well as our standard single spindle units.

Our Products

o New Compact Design - up to 200 strokes per minute.
Multiple Spindle - built to customers specs.
o Rapid Advance or Bottom Up Model - compensates for material lift.


We looked at all the in-die tapping options available and only one could meet our specifications. We bought that first 2-spindle ATS unit in 1996 and it paid for itself within the first year. We were so pleased with those savings and the units flawless performance that we have purchased thirteen more units since then with 1,2,3 or 5 spindles. We currently have eight progressive dies in use with eleven "bottom-up" tappers and three "top-down" units tapping up to six million pieces per spindle per year.

Major US Electrical Manufacturer

After switching from a competitors tapping unit to an ATS unit, we've run millions of parts and substantially reduced maintenance & operating costs. We have since converted all our tapping dies to ATS tapping units.

We've used ATS tapping units for the last 20 years, finding service & customer support to be exemplary. We've found the latest generation of ATS units too be the most compact, durable and designer friendly we've experienced.

Tryco Tool & Manufacturing Co., Inc.

After experiencing an alarming number of failures with a competitors tapping unit, we mounted an ATS unit in one of our existing tapping dies, With the ATS tapping unit we were able to increase our per tap numbers from 30 thousand parts per tap to 90 thousand parts per tap and were able to use standard taps priced at $8.00 each, compared to custom taps priced at $30.00 each. We have run in excess of 50 million pcs. lowering maintenance and operating costs to a small fraction of what they were.
