R-Drill™ Solutions

The Raydiance R-Drill™ solution is ideal for manufacturing intricate parts, such as GDi fuel injectors, because it creates precise micro holes in a single process to achieve part-to-part consistency that has enabled Raydiance customers to win new business and increase market share.

Industrial and medical device manufacturers capture production savings by drilling faster (<1 sec through 1.2 mm 316 SS) through thicker materials than ever before.

The R-Drill enables product parts with hole features — from perfectly round holes, elliptical holes, square holes, positive and negative tapers and micron-sized entrance and exit features to holes that alter shape and profile from the top to the bottom of the part — not previously possible without post processing.

Precision R-Drill Examples:
