Flow Drilling Machine

This machine was built to automatically drill & tap metal tubes for a large maufacturer using flow drilling technology.


Controlled by an Allen-Bradley MicroLogix PLC with the tube positioning control done using a Ultra 1500 servo drive. The speed of the drill and tap motors is controlled by Telemecanique Altivar inverters.


The operator interface was done using a Allen-Bradley PanelView HMI.
