Precision drilling can be a tricky pursuit that places heavy demands on tools and operators alike. With such microscopic measurements and tight tolerances, there is often next to no margin for error so using the best possible equipment can make a huge difference in the resulting product.

This formidable range, coupled with our team’s extensive knowledge of processes such as micro drilling and deep hole drilling, means that you can trust Rainford Precision to give you the perfect solution.
An interesting addition to the range of drills available from Rainford Precision are micro drills for composite materials starting at 0.48 mm diameter. The importance of these new tools will open up lots of possibilities for composite material designers. The drills are available in two ranges, PCD and diamond coated. For more details please refer to our “Composite Tools Tab” or call 01744 889726.
Our selection includes high precision drills from Union Tool, whose well-regarded C-UMD range of carbide micro drills are available in incremental sizes of 0.01mm up to a diameter of 2mm; along with
carbide coated micro deep hole drills, including the UTDLX with its reinforced shank; and the Series 081 selection of carbide micro spotting drills, specialised for drilling holes less than a millimetre in diameter.
Drills are available to support operations on almost any material, from stainless steels through to titanium, hard steel up to 75HRC, and tungsten carbide.
