    Manufacturing has experienced both positive and negative periods of economic development in recent years, which is often linked to the performance of several key industries, such as automotive, aerospace and oil & gas. However, there is one segment that weathers the storm regardless of the economic climate – Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO). 

    Regardless of whether times are good or bad, many industrial companies have continual requirements for MRO. Their primary aim is to find alternative options to keep costs low by reusing existing equipment or materials, repairing items, or simply choosing a cheaper option to get the job done.

    The latest report by business intelligence provider Visiongain, says that Europe’s MRO market reached spending of US$170bn in 2019 and is expected to grow at an annual rate of two percent. A key feature of MRO is hand-drilling operations, particularly standard high-speed steel (HSS) drills. Dormer Pramet is a leading manufacturer of HSS and HSS-E general purpose drills, with more than 100 years’ of providing cutting tools to meet MRO needs.

    The most popular ranges include jobber length and stub length drills for use in hand-held power drills, pillar drills and other manually operated machinery. Its stub length drills, feature shorter flutes to increase toughness and precision. This makes them ideal for tight spaces and hand-held operations that require rigidity.

    Versatile cutting tools

    A tool that features these characteristics is the popular Dormer A100 HSS drill. Suitable for drilling a variety of materials, such as steel, aluminium and stainless steel, the versatile A100 is ideal for hand-held applications. Additionally, the Dormer A002 general-purpose jobber length drill, developed more than 20 years ago, continues to be sold in huge quantities around the world. Providing a smooth cutting action and consistently high quality, in a wide variety of materials, its self-centring split point offers excellent positional accuracy.  The Dormer A777 and A117 high-speed cobalt jobber and stub drills provide another option for hand drilling. Their heavy-duty design makes them suitable for machining high-tensile, tougher materials, such as tool steels.
