ARC SPECIALTIES | ARC 11D-80 | SPINDLE DRILL SYSTEM

Machine Application

The ARC 11D-80 is a servo drilling system with both the power and precision necessary to make the process of drilling multiple holes into a pipe extremely efficient. The machine features a series of 80 spindles and motors, each individually controlled and monitored for speed and torque, boasting the capability to drill a pipe 80 times in a matter of seconds

Pipe & Spindle Features

Precisely rotated by 40 servo-controlled spindles reaching speeds up to 4000rpm, the ARC 11D-80 can support pipes up to 41’ in length and 9.5” in diameter. With a drill bit capacity ranging from 5/16” to 1/2”, the 11D-80 is able to pierce through pipe walls up to 1/2″ in thickness to generate holes of varying sizes and patterns (spiral & diamond). Providing vital user-feedback of any power or speed irregularities, an advanced HMI delivers maximum control, allowing users to manipulate parameters to achieve diverse results and make individual adjustments to maintain the consistency of the drilling pattern for desired product outcome.

Cooling System, Reservoir & Chip Conveyor

An integrated cooling system helps keep the drill bits from overheating, ensuring job consistency and quality. The robust cooling mechanism can pump up to 175 gallons of coolant per minute at 45psi while providing users the ability to slow the cooling motor down and lower volumes to desired levels.

A chip conveyor ensures a clean work station by catching and washing away drill chips as the system runs its course. The 12” wide, 45’ long conveyor belt features a 60° incline to carry the chips to a cooling reservoir where they are separated from the coolant to be re-used during the drilling process. The ‘dam-like’ reservoir layout ensures that the drill bits are properly captured, and the coolant is clean of any drilling residue.
