Deep-hole drilling specialist Mollart Engineering has captured international orders worth over £5m.
An order from one of the largest independent automotive manufacturers in North America, worth some £2.5m, will see Mollart supply four special purpose four- and six-spindle gun-drilling centres for producing oil galleries in transmission shafts. A further US order is for a Prismabore PRB 25 six-axis combination gun-drilling and machining centre, which is to be used for the deep-hole drilling of cooling holes in steel moulds. Mollart also reports that a two-spindle Drillsprint LD2-750 machine is going to China to drill holes 7-10 mm diameter by 600 mm deep in forged alloy steel diesel fuel rails.
