Deep hole drilling was developed for the manufacturing of guns, hence the name gundrilling. Originally a slow and expensive process, advances in technology have made it highly efficient. In medical device manufacturing, gundrilling is an ideal solution for most deep hole requirements. The process produces accurate, repeatable holes with excellent surface finishes. It is commonly used to produce cannulated screws, nails and drills.
Tegra Medical’s Memphis facility features three Eldorado gundrilling machines, including a twin spindle unit. The versatility of gundrilling machinery makes the process ideally suited for low as well as high volume production, and allows Tegra Medical to respond quickly to changing customer demands.
