Bradrad® precision tools drill and deburr from 1/4" to 4", or 5.5 to 100mm diameter, in material thicknesses up to 10mm.

Designed for industrial applications, each step produces accurate, parallel holes with a small clearance on the nominal diameter. It positively deburrs the entry side as the hole is drilled, and if the work can be reversed, both sides.

One ‘S’ Type Bradrad® can drill eleven different diameters, while the ‘A’ Type can drill nine.

The Bradrad® can be adapted for use on CNC machines.
