We offer a large range of hollow paper drill bits for manual, semi-automated, and fully automated applications. Manufactured to a high-quality standard in the modern manufacturing process, the drill bits come in various sizes and with various fittings.
The following drill bit types have known compatibility with the following vendors:
Before ordering, please check your paper drilling equipment specifications to ensure you choose the right fitting and that it can use the drill bit capacity. Not all paper drills can take all the diameters listed.
The paper drill bits come in three variants: High speed steel (HSS), Teflon, (TF), and Tungsten Carbide (TC).
The high-speed steel paper drill bits are mostly used for the drilling of offset and copies paper. HSS drill bits have good wear resistance and hardness properties for such applications.
The teflon coated drill bits are particularly suited for drilling plastics, films, and rubber. Teflon coating reduces frictional heat build-up, hence minimizing the melting of the polymers/laminate and reducing the tendency to stick at the drill bit during the drilling operation.
The tungsten carbide coated drill bits are suitable for drilling heavy boards or recycled papers. The brazed deposit of the tungsten carbide (TC) on the drill reduces the wear of the cutting edge so that the drill bit remains sharp for a longer time (up to 3 times compared to HSS). TC coated drill bits are particularly suited to drilling boards, plastics, films, and coated materials. These drill bits are ultimate long-life tools that are ideal for difficult stocks and where uninterrupted productivity is required.
