Drilling and tapping systems and techniques

Drilling as a mechanical process to make a cylindrical cavity by removing chips dates back more than 2.3 million years. From then on, man understood that by the rotational motion of a tool, - also called the cutting speed Vc (m / min), which is supported on a material and by the application of a pressing force, a working feed f ( mm / rot) -, we can extract pieces of material in the form of chips. The only condition required is that the hardness of the chiped material must be lower compared to that of the cutting tool.

Thus was born a new species of people who are able to produce toolsthat helped them obtain various construction elements. After 2.3 million years, all the objects around us were touched by a cutting tool. Of all the possible cutting processes, the drilling operation is the most common, and after all this time, this cutting process still gives us headaches. We propose that during the event we discuss the most important aspects of drilling and tapping operations and what techniques influence our productivity.
