Series 2100H AutoDrill

Open Product Catalog

AutoDrill offers a machine specifically set up for use with common annular cutters such as, but not limited to Hougen or Jancy brand. AutoDrill’s 2100H Series self-feeder drill is a good match when you must drill large holes through plate materials up to 5/8″ thick. This specific self-feeder drill and an annular cutter remove material with less energy by only drilling the outer portion of the hole and dropping a plug. The power required is sometimes up to 67% less than removing the material with standard drill tooling. This makes this machine a “green” option compared to standard drilling processes. This unit can often be configured to run in any orientation.

AutoDrill often can offer annular cutter units with a positive plug ejection system. This helps make sure that the slug of material that is cut by the hole-saw-like tool is ejected to complete the operation. It uses the reverse thrust of the AutoDrill Self-Feeder to eject the plug (hundreds of pounds of thrust) rather than just a simple spring ejection system which can often fail and cause costly downtime to your process.

AutoDrill will gladly walk through the advantages and details associated with this highly efficient method of drilling holes. Please CONTACT US to discuss your application and receive prompt product cost, literature and technical help.
