AutoDrill – Various and Not Categorized

The Future of Automatic and Gang Drilling is AutoDrill

With many of our competitor’s deciding to scale back or even shut down operations, we stand here ready to serve you and your company’s production drilling needs.

Our competitors often sell outdated, inefficient machines.  We sell only the most modern and efficient designs.

The remaining major competitors to AutoDrill are either overpriced, overseas, or sometimes both!  We keep everything except custom drilling heads and devices in stock at all times.

You Are Going to Need a Bigger Drill

Remember that line from Jaws?  “You’re gonna need a bigger boat?”  …Well, we often tell people calling that they are going to need a bigger drill.  Here is a quick overview:

What do you do when a customer calls asking for a drill that simply isn’t offered in modern form by any known manufacturer?  You know…  When they need 25 HP, 30,000 lbs. of thrust, etc.

AutoDrill has a unique solution.  As shown in the attached photo, we can mount multi-drill heads right on to the face of a motor.  Whether that motor is a small 56C face as shown or a double or even triple digit HP unit, we can make the adapter and the drilling head capable of handling your process.

The head can be made with an extended housing so it can be mounted right to a flat plate or even to a slide.  Then the movement / motion is up to you.  You can use pneumatics, hydraulics, mechanical means or even just simple leverage and a human being to stroke the part or the head.

We have sold numerous heads with this type of set up ranging from single spindle units to 36 spindle units.  …If you have a special need for this, please contact us.  We even have machine builder standing ready to quote the slide mechanisms for you.

Custom ER16 Collet Chucks

These ER16 collet chucks were custom made for a customer’s drawings.

The longer units are a Jacobs #6 (J6) mount.

The shorter ones are a solid 1/2″ shaft.

All are using a special ER16 mini nut that has the ability to be tightened and taken off via a hex nut. These nuts differ from standard ER16A or ER16 hex nuts in that they allow the customer to use this chuck in a narrow passageway where the standard nut would not fit.
