Hole drilling

Our current drilling devices are miniature, PC-controlled, 3-axis machines which may be pre-programmed to drill the hole with an orbital motion :

This cutting action reduces the heat output during drilling and results in better strain output stability.  Reduced cutter wear enables the hole drilling method to be applied to harder materials using conventional tungsten carbide cutters (for example, nitrided surfaces).  

A diamond impregnated inverted cone cutter may be used to extend the hole drilling method to glass and ceramic components.



The long-term reliability of residual stress results from Stresscraft is brought about by the consistent use of all the following component parts :


Additional components extend the use of the hole drilling method into more difficult conditions :
