Deep Hole Drilling Tools

Deep hole drilling tooling includes cutting tools, as well as durable components that work to integrate the tools and machines to produce deep holes. Deep hole drilling tooling is essential to meet both production and performance demands of our customers, and is integrated into every machine we build.

Tools such as gundrills, BTA drills, and related tools are used on UNISIG deep hole drilling machines, and applied across many different industries, from the smallest medical component to large forgings requiring holes 20 meters deep. UNISIG is involved in the selection of cutting tools, process development, testing, refinement, and documentation of an optimal drilling process.

Deep hole drilling tooling works together with the deep hole drilling system to cut efficiently while maintaining straightness, reducing vibrations, and supporting cutting tools and workpieces. We separate tooling into two major categories – deep hole drilling tools, and a system of durable tooling. UNISIG produces durable tooling components for gundrilling and BTA drilling processes, with the exception of cutter bodies and carbide.
