5100 Series AutoDrill (Heavy-Duty)

The 5100 AutoDrill series is based on the 5000 series AutoDrill with the addition of a Hydro Speed feed control. By adding the Hydro Speed unit, the control is no longer simply done by pneumatic devices.  A dual speed feed rate is standard. The Hydro Speed (sometimes called Hydra-Brake) controls the critical work penetration feed rate and breakthrough process. Check out our videos section for examples of a Hydro Speed in use.

The 5100 series is offered for heavy duty or large hole operations or when the most robust and reliable unit is necessary. The features on the 5100 series unit make it very simple to maintain and operate. Its adjustment methods are easy to understand, including the adjustable feed rate. It is very simple to use yet is extremely capable.

Because of its efficiency, your costs are kept low. Whether it helps you make more product in the same amount of time (cost savings) or simply helps you to keep up with high volume requests (higher production), the 5100 series self-feeder unit is an excellent choice.

Some of the many uses for the 5100 AutoDrill series are:

  • Plate and structural steel hole drilling operations
