ALL-IN-ONE HOLE SHEET METAL HOLE CUTTING PACKAGES
RotaCut Sheet Metal Hole Cutter Master Kits from Hougen Manufacturing have 16 different sizes of cutters for drilling holes in materials up to ¼ in thick for metal fabrication, maintenance and electrical applications, spot weld removal, plug holes for welding, and production environments.
Hougen Manufacturing Inc. (Swartz Creek, MI), inventor of the Rotabroach® annular cutter and leading manufacturer for magnetic drills, introduces two new RotaCut Sheet Metal Hole Cutter Master Kits in Booth C-4821. Each of the new kits are an all-in-one set, containing 16 different sizes of RotaCuts for drilling holes in materials up to ¼ in thick.
The fractional kit includes cutters from ¼ in to ¾ in and the metric kit includes sizes from 6 mm to 20 mm. RotaCuts are ideal for use in all types of metal fabrication, maintenance and electrical applications, spot weld removal, plug holes for welding, and production environments.
Each kit is packaged in a sturdy plastic storage case and includes an arbor assembly, extra pilots, center punch, washers and instructions on use. RotaCuts can be used in hand-held electric drills with 3/8 in chucks and in drill presses. RotaCut sheet metal hole cutters are made of M2 HSS, hardened and precision ground.
The annular or hollow design cuts only at the periphery of the hole, leaving the center as a solid slug of material. Because there is no center point or “dead zone” as with conventional hole making tools, the annular cutter configuration has demonstrated the ability to drill holes up to 3X faster and last 10X longer than twist drills or hole saws. The cutters cut holes that are virtually burr-free and do not deform the surrounding material, even thin sheet metal. RotaCuts are made in the USA. www.hougen.com
