NOVATOR
Orbital Drilling

Portable Orbital Drilling Units are versatile lightweight drilling units based on Novator’s patented Orbital Drilling technology.

Designed for hard and complex materials.

Portable Orbital Drilling Units are designed for drilling cylindrical and countersunk holes in hard materials such as Titanium, Stainless steel and any combination stack-ups including these materials, now produced and supported by èèɫ.

The Orbital Drilling Concept.

Novator’s patented orbital drilling technology is based on simultaneously rotating a cutting tool around its own axis and a center axis that is offset from the cutting tool’s axis.

Highlights:
  • Variable manual offset adjustment
  • Programmable feed rate
  • Programmable orbital speed
  • Automatic hole identification
  • Fool proof operation procedures
  • Minimal Quantity Lubrication (MQL) or pressurized air through the spindle axis

Burrless and
Delamination-Free Holes

The orbital technology allows Orbital PM-Series to use a low thrust force. Lower force in combination with orbital movement of the cutter produces burrless holes in metal. Lower thrust also enables drilling of delamination-free holes in composite materials, and risk of part deflection is reduced when drilling in stacks.

One Tool - Different hole sizes

Orbital PM-Series has a manually adjustable offset of the cutting tool. By changing the offset, different hole sizes can be made with one single tool.

Burrless and
Smaller, easier-to-remove chips

Orbital drilling reduces chip-induced damage. Novator’s tools have a smaller diameter than the hole and produce smaller chips that are efficiently removed in an advanced airflow system. Efficient chip extraction also enables drilling in closed sections.

Dry Drilling

The orbital drilling cutter has only partial and intermittent contact with the material. That, together with efficient air cooling of the cutting tool and the hole surface, enables dry drilling or quasi-dry drilling, which requires MQL. Efficient heat extraction also reduces risk of matrix melting in composites and heat-affected zones in metal.
