A single tube system also is known as an STS or sometimes referred to as a BTA System is used for deep hole drilling. A Single Tube System is designed to drill deep holes that can be up to 100 times its width. Single tube drilling provides good chip removal as well as providing high flow coolant to the drilling area.
Feature Of a Single Tube Drilling System
In a single tube system, it is designed to allow coolant flow to where the drilling is happening. Also, it will flush chips through the inside diameter of the tube. Because of this unique feature, it allows the system to drill deeper much easier than other systems. These types of systems are the best options for deep hole drilling. This system supports tools ranging from 11.10 mm – 762mm (.437″- 30.000″) diameter. This system is good for drilling titanium, low carbon steel, and even stainless steel.
