DrillMate - Safety Wire Bolt Cross Drills

by: Stephen Parker
DrillMate Safety wire, or lock wire, is often used in conjunction with safety wire bolts to add an extra precaution in securing parts. The process ensures that critical bolts do not loosen because of vibration, or other forces, and attached parts don't fall off.  When creating safety wire bolts, you need machines that are able to drill small diameter holes through the bolt head or body. For this stage we recommend the DrillMate. The DrillMate can efficiently cross drill safety wire bolts in regular and heavy hex heads, socket heads, 12 point bolts, and round bar. This makes the DrillMate ideal for drilling bolts for safety wire.  Read More
