Hole drilling

Simply drill holes in multiple configurations
AgieCharmilles DRILL 20 is a high-speed drill machine widely used for drilling starting holes. In aerospace for aircraft engines, as well as gaz turbines in energy production, cooling holes are needed for creating a film of cooling air on the surface of turbine blades and vanes to prevent them from melting. With its five axis configuration the machine can drill holes at any angles on a inclined surface workpiece.

Shorten your setup time

Process monitoring and optimization are implemented via the operator console. Sensors for short circuits, temperature and liquid level ensure safe operation. Numerical controlled X, Y and Z axes and a variety of touching cycles, offers convenience for the operator when set up.

Make your life easier

The data input on the operator console is quick and simple. Technology settings are selected automatically by material electrode / piece, piece height and electrode diameter. Touching cycles can be programmed and called up with a few commands.


Maximum drilling depth

With drilling depths of up to 200 mm (7.78 in), DRILL 20 is the ideal vertical drill for an extensive range of applications.

Fine electrode technology

Its technology for fine electrodes Ø0.1 – 0.3 mm (0.004 – 0.012 in), make this machine suitable for drilling fine start holes on lead frames or high-speed stamping molds.
