The unit shown above is only one of many models sold by AutoDrill.  It is a direct drive model where the input:output ratio is 1:1 for the motor:drill set-up.  What does this mean?  Well, for most people, it simply means a slim, compact but powerful drill.  For others, it means that a VFD or inverter set-up can be used to infinitely adjust the RPM rate for the machine while it performs it’s process.

With reversing motors, rigid or radial/linear float tap processes can be performed.

This unit can be driven by single phase, three phase, special voltage/type motors, air or even hydraulic drive motors.

Custom Four Spindle Drill Unit Head for Drill Press or Selffeeding Drill

This multi-drill spindle head was made for a customer who needed to make four holes in one shot. The goal was to be able to make a specific four hole pattern for their application reliably and repeatedly over a long period of time.

The volume of parts made was very high and the head was made to standards well above what was actually needed. This should result in a very long lifespan of the drillunit head.

Gang drill heads such as these have hardened helical gearing inside and generally require a light greasing from time to time via conveniently located grease fittings.

We can offer these devices with as few as 1 or 2 spindles or as many as 35+. We can mount them on Bridgeport machines, drill presses or column drills, mills, CNCs selfeeding drills, pneumatic drills, motors, etc. We delight in solving your application challenges.
