We are pleased to introduce a new process to Lindsay Machine Works – Gundrilling. Unlike our typical machine investments here, this Unisig-Kansai KSG-1000NC Gundrill is a totally unique process compared to traditional machining. While holes can be drilled using mills and lathes, gundrilling allows us to drill holes much deeper than what’s capable on those previously mentioned machine tools. This allows us to offer a wider range of processes to complete in our facility. We now have the deep hole drilling capability of up to 1”OD and at a max depth of 48” . This gives us the most control on pricing and, often more important, lead time.
Additionally, check out the manufactures’ article on gundrilling to get more specifics on the process itself.
