The Gundrilling Machine
The gun drill is supported by anti-whip devices along the shank length and at the rear of the chip box. The chip box contains a chip deflector and a front end bushing which guides the drill into the workpiece. The chip box also contains escaping chips and lubricant, which are separated and filtered.
Gundrilling machines come in many variations, from single spindle manual models to CNC units with multiple spindles of different designs. They can be integrated into transfer lines or be part of a machining or turning center. Gun drilling is also becoming popular as a retrofit package for both conventional and CNC machines.
