Digital Depth Gauge
Analog Depth Gauge
Depth control is an intricate part of the
drilling process. When aspect ratios are pushed to the limit, depth penetration
becomes extremely critical. If not maintained properly, tool costs will
skyrocket along with drilled scrap. Checking the depth penetration on a
scheduled basis is highly important.
Depth Gauge Pin
CPSI pins are made from solid
stainless steel blanks. This is a critical feature
when diameters reach .008".
Other diameters and lengths are available
Window Base Side and Bottom
We utilize a patent pending base with a
convenient viewing window that was created specifically for the operators ease
of use. This feature also dramatically reduces the occurrence of broken
The following diagram illustrates the
problems that can be encountered when drill depth is not controlled. When the
depth is excessive, the drill flute cannot effectively remove the debris. This
condition will more than likely cause breakage of the tool. If the tool does not
break, the hole quality will suffer due to excessive heat buildup. The rule of
thumb is to maintain a minimum above stack clearance of 2 times the diameter of
the tool. The depth into the backup should be maintained at 1 times the diameter
of the tool up to 0.035".>0.035" diameter tools should maintain a
depth of 0.35".
