Gun Drilling

Gun drilling produces the best quality hole, both dimensionally and freedom from surface flaws in our large flat platens. The gun drilling process starts with flat structural steel that is fed into a rotating straight flute drill, chips are flushed out of the cavity, and by using intermediate inspection for concentricity it is possible to maintain the straightness of the hole. Although expensive, the quality of the hole cannot be rivaled.

Airfloat technology can be drilled into platens and other flat materials to provide smooth easy loading and unloading of heavy components, laminates and honeycomb panels.

We can offer our customers gun drilling capabilities for parts up to 72" x 168" and handle up to 10,000lbs of weight. If you have a gun drilling requirement that requires our expertise and specialized equipment, please contact us !
