The Development of a New Drill Motor Concept 2011-01-2727

PFD 1500 is a positive feed drill developed to offer process enhancement possibilities and cost savings both when drilling blank aluminum and stacks with CFRP and titanium. The design concept is completely modular, which offers unique versatility in a drill motor which quickly can be configured to meet any application in its niche. Designed to meet today's torque requirements, PFD 1500 mitigates many of the quality problems normally experienced with the use of positive feed drills. In use on assembly lines, PFD 1500 has proven to be capable of drilling close tolerance holes of large diameters in significantly shorter time than earlier proven possible.
