Automated Drilling Stations RDS

The alternative to cross-hole pressing and manual drilling

The automated RDS drilling station presents an efficient and cost-effective solution for the post-sinter process of special cutting insert geometries, such as tangential milling inserts.

Unlike manual green compact machining processes, which tend to be labor-intensive and prone to high scrap rates, the RDS drilling station offers automation that enhances efficiency and reduces waste.

Moreover, in situations where the purchase of a cross hole press might not be economically viable due to high recurring quantities, the RDS drilling station becomes an attractive alternative. It caters to small and medium batch sizes while still maintaining productivity and cost-effectiveness.
