Why Choose the AlumaDrill?

Our AlumaDrill annihilates in high-speed drilling in titanium, graphite, brass & copper, high si aluminum, low so aluminum, composites, plastics, and wood. In this article, we’re going to discuss the advantages of why you should choose the AlumaDrill when drilling in aluminum.


Why Choose the AlumaDrill as Your Go-To Drill:

Versatility: The AlumaDrill excels in high-speed drilling applications for a wide range of materials, including aluminum, titanium, brass, copper, plastics, and even wood. This makes it an ideal choice for a variety of applications in the aerospace, automotive, mold, and electronics industries, making it a versatile option for a variety of machining applications.

Performance: The AlumaDrill features enhanced chip evacuation and a unique point geometry that allows for self-centering and increased aggressiveness in softer materials. This results in faster drilling speeds and improved hole quality, resulting in superior drilling performance. Three-flute drills often allow for higher feed rates compared to 2-flute drills. This means you can remove material more quickly, leading to faster drilling times and potentially increased productivity.

Precision: Due to increased stability by the third flute, 3-flute drills can produce a better surface finish on aluminum. This can be important in applications where aesthetics or precision are critical.

Durability: The AlumaDrill is manufactured from high-quality materials and was purposefully built to withstand the rigors of industrial use. This makes it a reliable and long-lasting tool. In many cases, 3-flute drills can have a longer tool life compared to 2-flute drills because they can distribute the cutting forces more evenly across the tool. This can result in less wear and tear on the cutting edges.

Overall, the AlumaDrill is a versatile, high-performance, and durable drill that offers terrific value for the price. It’s an excellent choice for a wide range of applications in a variety of industries.

Wondering how the AlumaDrill can benefit you? Check out these examples.

  • Aerospace: The AlumaDrill is ideal for drilling in aluminum airframe components, titanium, and other high-strength alloys used in commercial aircraft and spacecraft.
  • Automotive: The AlumaDrill is currently used to drill in a variety of materials in the automotive industry, such as aluminum, brass, and copper. Automotive aftermarket manufacturers strive for the highest in aesthetics and finish and our AlumaDrill has quickly become the standard.
  • Electronics: The AlumaDrill is well-suited for drilling in delicate electronic components, such as circuit boards and semiconductors.
