What are you looking for in Holemaking?

As you well know, a hole is not just a hole; there are a multitude of characteristics to consider such as positioning accuracy, hole geometry and surface finish.

On top of that, there are tool features such as user friendliness and adjustability that may be important for your application.

Please refer to the matrix and first quick explanation. And don’t hesitate to get more in-depth information from your Seco® representative.
