Unibor Electromagnetic Drilling Systems
Unibor Drilling and Cutting Equipment - 3/14/2013 2:53:22 PM
From humble beginnings 30 years ago as a contractors’ plant, tool hire and sales outlet, Universal Drilling and Cutting Equipment has developed into arguably the world’s largest manufacturer of broaching hole cutters and electro-magnetic drilling machines. Widely used in steel fabrication and construction - both in the shop and out on site - the broach cutting system provides great benefits in terms of accuracy, efficiency, portability, versatility, and time (and therefore cost) savings. Using its extensive experience of solving hole cutting problems, Universal has also developed specialized machines such as the Airbor and the Hydrobor, operated entirely by compressed air or hydraulic power, for use in hazardous environments or even underwater, where electric power is impossible. The company’s highly skilled engineers have also developed many unique cutters for specialized applications and situations, and are always happy to consult on particular problems. With marketing subsidiaries in the USA, Holland and France and distributors throughout the world, the company is still driven by the energy, commitment and enthusiasm of its founder and CEO, Mike Bryan and his team of specialists, all striving to keep Universal Drilling and Cutting Equipment at the forefront of hole cutting excellence. The success of Unibor broaching (or annular) cutters is proven in their daily use in many kinds of application throughout the world. By removing only the metal at the periphery of the hole and ejecting a solid slug at the end of the cut, less material is converted into 'chips', requiring much less power than conventional twist drills. The unique geometry of Unibor cutters also helps to achieve faster feed, lower cutting resistance, greater accuracy, longer tool life and a better finish. Unibor is the brand name of high quality engineering tools and products manufactured by Universal Drilling and Cutting Equipment. Contact Danco for more information 1-800-992-3233

Guhring’s new RF 100 High-Performance carbide end mills excel thanks to variable helix angles which considerably reduces vibration. The variable helix angle vastly improves surface quality for finishing operations and a considerably higher feed rates for slot drilling. In roughing applications, the result is a drastic increase in tool life in comparison to conventional rough mill cutters with round or flat knuckle-type teeth. These end mills are available with FIREX, Super-A, nano-A, and TiALN coatings, in addition to a bright finish.
