Cleveland tapping quality Model E machines
Drilling machines and tapping machines are used to drill or thread holes in a metal surface. Drilling machines and tapping machines vary from the tiny bench machine used in the finest jeweler’s operation to the huge, heavy-duty machines that bore large holes in steel forgings at an astonishing rate.
Originally operated by Automatic Steel Products, Inc. of Canton, Ohio., it was in Canton that the famed Model E Series tapping machine was developed in the 1940s.
Cleveland tapping machines are vital in the metalworking industry and are a favorite of engineers who need to have a whole driven into metal forcefully.

The Model E Series is and continues to be a favorite of metalworkers because of all Cleveland tapping machines it is the most versatile, with a total of 7 varieties of Precision Lead Screw Tapping Machines.
Capable of being used both manually and automatically, Precision Lead Screw Tapping Machines are primarily used automatically for large scale operations.
However, engineers and machinists, use them to bore precision holes needed for a small project. Machines set up to drill holes automatically can drill as many as 2700 parts per hour and are capable of multi-head operation, with up to 8 heads.
Computer controlled tapping
As technology advances, Cleveland Tapping has followed suit, and today, one of the most popular models in large metal-working facilities is the Cleveland C-2000 Electronic Lead Screw Tapping Machine.
As is obvious from the description, this tapping machine operates via computer and contains up to 40 tapping programs. These automated taping machines can drill up to 4,000 precision nuts per hour.
Model F tapping machines
Designed for the big jobs, the Cleveland F-line machines are designed for heavy duty tapping and threading and are used to produce plumbing fittings, construction nuts, mine nuts, and bridge nuts and more.
For the production of heavy parts, the Cleveland F Series cannot be beaten.
Finally, Cleveland tapping produces special custom tapping machines including an 8 station machine that will tap up to 17 holes at a time and perform a variety of tasks enabling the production of 120 machined pieces per hour.
Another, smaller custom machines will handle 32 smaller drill tappings at a time. And works with a single operator and parts automation.
