Self Feeding Drill Example
Self feed Drill Units provide both a precision motor driven spindle and pneumatic feed in one compact package. The Engineering needed for Automatic Drilling is available in one unit with many years of reliable field use with reliable product and spare parts support always available.
We have three Series of drilling units to cover hole sizes from .020" (1/2mm) up to 2-3/8"(60mm) depending on the material and volume of holes to be drilled. When holes are spaced closer than about 6" we can provide both our Adjustable Spindle Heads or our Fixed Pattern Heads to use in-place of the single hole drill chuck.
The animated drawing below displays the rotating and stroking operations as built into our Drill Units.
Some Typical Drill-Unit Applications are:
Automation pneumatic, electrical or PLC controls complete the drill system. Industrial pneumatic valves, sized correctly, provide reliable reciprocal forward and reverse stroking. Many optional controls are available to handle most requested applications.
Free application and engineering assistance is provided. View the "Application Examples" page for some of our many successful projects.
