Cooper Tools’ Quackenbush Adaptive Drilling System for aerospace applications automatically controls drill speeds to match specific materials, regardless of layer thickness. The system efficiently shifts between high and low drill speeds in less than one second, providing significant increases in productivity when compared to conventional positive feed drilling systems. The result is a reduction in drill cycle time of up to 60% over comparative products.
