Metal Materials in Gundrilling

Machining metal materials for industrial applications offers dynamic advantages to your operations. Metals display various characteristics, including machinability, strength, versatility, and reliability. Gundrilling works with a range of metal materials to fabricate the required components to exact specifications. Learn about gundrilling capabilities for metal materials, the benefits of gundrilling for metals, and applications using gun-drilled metal components.

Gundrilling Capabilities for Metal Materials

As a fabrication process, gundrilling is the best way to achieve the roundest, straightest bores in any material type. Characteristics of metal materials vary in wall thickness, material density, and hardness, posing potential challenges to drilling operations. Gundrilling manufacturing is individualized to the needs of the application and the material to address any potential complications.

With the ability to produce a variety of complex hole types, gundrilling offers a precision drilling process for metal materials used in industrial applications. Metal materials used for industrial applications in gundrilling fabrication include:

  • Alloy Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Brass
  • Cast Iron
  • Heat Treated Stainless
  • Steel
  • Titanium
  • Tool Steel

Benefits of Using Metal Materials in Gundrilling

Metal materials provide a variety of different advantages to their applications. In gundrilling, metal materials are machined with specialized processes to address their characteristics. Depending on the material and the stress, force, and torque the application applies, metal materials can be an excellent choice, providing durability and machinability. Some metal materials offer incredible strength, some have treatments for different operating elements, and gundrilling can produce perfectly round bores with enhanced straightness and the ability to reach increased depths.

Gundrilling provides the highest consistency and repeatability of available drilling processes and is capable of premium machining to meet your exact technical specifications.
