Your specialist
in flow drilling

Welcome to Centerdrill

The brand Centerdrill already exists for over 20 years. Centerdrill is a synonym for highly precise and economic tools "Made in Germany". Here you can buy directly from the manufacturer. With our quality flowdrilling tools you have found a non-cutting method for creating holes in thin-walled metal components (it also called Flowdrill-Process). The chipless drilling process is ideal to make bushings with strong threads. We replace rivet nuts, welding nuts and thread cutting in thin material thicknesses. How it works? Please see our Centerdrill Video.

With our new Centerdrill Explorer we give you the opportunity to find fast and easy the right flow drilling tool for your application. You also get much useful information about your existing Centerdrill and necessary process data for the flow drilling process.

You can order our products directly from our Online-Shop. Here you will find Centerdrill tools for flow drilling, Centertap threadformers, Starter-Sets and much more.
