Fully-automated drilling system
Published:  11 January, 2022

ESAB has announced it has introduced its Auto Drill 30 fully-automated drilling system capable of drilling holes with diameters up to 30 mm through plate thicknesses up to 50 mm, depending on material type. The new system uses a completely new spindle design to expand drilling diameter and add capabilities.

Equipped with a seven-tool changer to accommodate seven different tools within the same program, the Auto Drill 30 can also tap, countersink and counterbore. The Auto Drill 30 is an available option for ESAB’s Suprarex HDX and NUMOREX automated cutting machines, making it ideal for steel service centres, large manufacturers, bridge builders and structural steel companies. It can be used in combination with stations for plasma beveling, oxy-fuel cutting, inkjet marking and pin stamping.
