The E-Z Burr BurrFree Drill is now available in standard sizes.
The tools have been around since 2003, but until now, E-Z Burr BurrFree Drills have only been available as custom-built special orders. Now they're manufactured in a variety of standard fractional and metric sizes for hole diameters .374" (9.5mm) and larger.
Widely used in the automotive and other metalworking industries, the BurrFree Drill is especially beneficial to customers whose operations require a burr free hole. The tool saves users time, space and money because it drills a hole, then deburrs both the front and the rear of a hole in a single pass. Combining two operations in one step frees up extra space in the machine, increasing both productivity and profitability.
The BurrFree Drill features three of E-Z Burr's patents. One, the insert adjustment, allows the size of chamfer to be adjusted. Two, the quick changing locking system enables the user to change the insert in seconds. Both of these procedures can be done without removing the tool from the machine. And three, the tool is designed to allow just the cutting inserts to be replaced when worn, minimizing unnecessary disposal of other components.
"That's not the only way the BurrFree Drill saves you time and money," said Bill Robinson, E-Z Burr's President. "The spade insert and the deburr insert can both be changed quickly and easily, minimizing downtime. All that’s required to change the spade insert is the removal of two screws, while a simple 1/8th turn will unlock the deburr insert.
"Another thing our customers like about the tool is that
it’s easy to set up, and once the deburr insert is adjusted to the desired cutting height, it doesn’t require more readjustment. Additionally, the solid arbor, durable design, quick insert setup and machining time saved all translate into increased productivity and higher profits.
The new standard sizes can generally be delivered in about a week according to Bill Robinson. "But we still manufacture plenty of custom tools for non-standard sizes," he pointed out. "And those can be in your shop or factory in just about four weeks."
