The TechniDrill BTA/STS line of drilling machines offer larger drilling capacities for large diameter hole applications, such as those typically seen in the aerospace and petrochemical industries. Machine models are offered with up to 10 inches (254 mm) of drill capacity available.

Because of the large workpieces typically involved, many different fixturing options can be designed and built to suit your application.

Each TechniDrill BTA/STS machine also includes a robust coolant system and a Microsoft Windows®-based controls package.
