Drilling, Thread Cutting, and Thread Milling

Manual preparatory work cannot be avoided completely

Drilling and thread cutting of metal and plastic are rather commonplace and are often included into operations of HSC and 5-axis milling systems.
There is no way around subsequent drilling or thread cutting for larger objects that have had preparatory work steps like bending, bonding, and polishing. Here, we draw on an electric drilling and thread cutting system by Volumec with an operating range of 2,000 mm. Due to the parallel articulated arm, we are able to generate highly precise holes and threads over a large machining area. The electronic speed control enables us to comply with the process parameters of plastic and metal that can vary widely.

Welding and Inserting Studs

Depending on the product's requirements, we have various procedures at our disposal to join studs inseparably with the material.

Surface Refinement

Glass bead blasting, corundum blasting, polishing, or satin finishing - from various surfaces all the way to galvanically produced layers.

We use speed-controlled precision drills by Flott for further standard applications. These machines are all equipped with Swiss-made thread cutting devices.
We also have a box column drill with feed and thread cutting devices by Alzmetall at our disposal for heavy steel applications.
Cooling lubricant supply, automatic feed, and automatic thread cutting devices are self-evident features.

Drilling acrylic glass – not as simple

If one wants the result to be perfect, one needs to choose the correct tools and be aware of the ideal drill geometry. As opposed to the cutting geometry of metal drills, scraping drills are used when processing acrylic glass, similar to processing brass. In other words, the rake angle is only allowed to be 0° to 4° on a point angle of 60° to 90°. Water with a little dishwashing detergent is a perfect drilling fluid.
