Craftsman is excited about our recently purchased Taurus gundrill! It has a heavy duty multi-spindle and 4-axis traveling column. The table load capacity is 60,000 lbs with drilling spindle speeds of 0-3400 rpm. It has an extra heavy duty milling spindle, auxiliary spindle speeds of 0-2000 rpm and a CAT 50 auxiliary Spindle Taper. It uses the STS (single tube system) drill. This drill removes chips through an internal tube, eliminating all the problems of chip binding and jamming which often occur with conventional deep hole drills. With the STS drill, operators can increase feed up to 8 ipm for standard cooling holes. As a result, they cut part cycle time by up to 50 percent!
