What Is Tube Sheet CNC Drilling Machine
- Jan 25, 2019 -

Tube sheet CNC drilling is the process of using a CNC drilling machine to create holes for tube sheets. In the process, peck drilling, or interrupted cut drilling, is used to keep swarf from detrimentally building up when drilling deep holes for tube sheets (approximately when the depth of the hole is three times greater than the drill diameter).

Tube Sheet CNC drilling also involves translating G-code consisting of specific instruction to move the drill bit to various locations and depths. The use of a computer improves the accuracy and precision that are much needed in the fabrication of tube sheets. For tube sheets to perform properly, their holes must be drilled correctly. Therefore, by using CNC drilling, tube sheet fabrication becomes more reliable, and a better product can be manufactured.
