Drilling Machines

From small handheld power drills to bench-mounted and floor-mounted drill presses, drilling machines cut holes and do tapping, countersinking, reaming, boring and counterboring into or through metal, wood, or other materials using a cutting tool held in the drill by a chuck or Morse taper that is rotated and fed into the work at variable speeds.

A Faster, More-Accurate Way to Tap and Drill Structural Steel

Acieta drilling

A heavy equipment manufacturer is using a 6-axis robotic arm equipped with a drilling spindle to very precisely make holes in structural steel up to 1 inch thick. The solution is one-third the cost of traditional drilling but performs many other applications and requires just one operator.

How Smart Drilling Improves Bone Fracture Operations

When repairing a fracture in osteosynthesis, doctors once had to manually determine bone diameter and hole depth during the operation using a gauge, which could lead to mistakes in screw selection. Now an intelligent drilling machine can properly measure the length of screws without error.
