Trepanning can be a cost-effective way to perform deep hole drilling. Instead of drilling out an entire hole, Trepanning just cuts out the core. IN addition, trepanning tools require less energy compared to other hole drilling solutions. The solid core material that is left by using trepanning tools is easier to handle.
This leaves you with more material that is easier to recycle than chips or shavings. Also, the solid core that is left behind by using trepanning tools won’t be as difficult to clean or separate the cutting oils from the bulk materials.
Solid Core Instead of Shavings More Cost Effective
Deep hole drilling usually leaves shavings or chips to be removed while drilling. Trepaning leaves a solid core. The core can be used quicker than just a pile of shavings and chips. Also, does leave some shavings from the process but nearly as much as other processes. Trepanning can handle cuts up to 6 inches in diameter.
The basic principle of trepanning, unlike solid drilling, is that a core is developed, once the component has been trepanned. In the majority of cases, the cores that remain most often can be used to produce other parts. Also, this is a great alternative if you don’t have sufficient horsepower to push solid drilling tools.
Still, the major advantage of trepanning is the use of less power due to the fact it does not need to remove chips and shavings. At BTA Heller and Sunnen, we strive to provide the most cost-effective way to deep hole drill. With our years of experience in creating trepanning deep hole drilling tooling we have been able to improve our product offerings. Experience the BTA Heller Difference!
Deep Hole Drilling Solutions
As a part of Sunnen, there are two types of trepanning tools. The first is the Core Maximizer (pictured above right). These are designed to use stacked indexable inserts which create a 3/4″ (19.05 mm) cutting. The other tool is the Flange Mount Tool (pictured above left). This line is designed with multiple carbide grades. Also, it has coatings and chip breakers. In addition, all of the trepanning tools have reversible carbide pads which extend the life.
