Centerdrill

Your specialist
for flowdrilling

Max. material thickness

The standard Centerdrills are suitable for material thicknesses from 0.8 – 12mm. The maximum wall thickness is depending on the thread size and on the Centerdrill tool type. In the following table you will find information regarding the wall thickness for each Centerdrill type combined with each thread size and additionally you will find the length of working part L1 and the shank diameters of the Centerdrill tools.

Tip:
Especially for small profiles / applications it could be very interesting to know the length of working part L1. Please compare the diameter of your profile with the length of working part L1. This way, you can prevent that the tool does not abuts on the opposite side of the profile.

Special tools for everybody:
Special tools are a not inconsiderable part of our daily business. Should your application be excluded by this data, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can develop the best solution, this means a special tool, for your application. At Centerdrill we have 20 years of experience helping customers successfully achieve their production goals!

Please note:

To process stainless steel from M8 –M12, we recommend using a centerdrill core hole diameter of +0.1mm (i. e. instead of 7.3mm a centerdrill 7,4 mm).
