It’s a slightly ironic situation that computers, tablets, phones and products requiring electronics need to use a tapping machine to exist. You almost have a chicken and egg situation where you have to ask which came first: the tapping machine to provide the precise holed circuit board or the computer that programmed it how to do it!
Simply put, if it were not for Tapping Machines like the ones from Cotswold Machinery Sales then there is no way we would be able to use the technology that we have today. A tapping machine is a device that makes holes. However, we are not talking about any old set of holes. These are precision “tapped” holes through a circuit or motherboard to allow the correct and exact placement of a predesigned electronics.
In the past it would have been fine, and was work that was done by a human being to oversee it. However with the in depth position of components placement being totally essential to the device operating effectively plus enabling the system to be minimised as much as possible to maximise space, this work has to be precise. It also has to be done quickly given the amount of products needing electronics that are required to be produced. Therefore a computer aided machine will quickly tap out the holes in all the right places to make sure the job is done quickly and well.
