Swartz Creek, MI - Hougen Manufacturing, inventor of the Rotabroach® annular cutter and leading manufacturer for magnetic drills introduces two new RotaCut Sheet Metal Hole Cutter Master Kits. Each of the new kits are an all in one set containing 16 different sizes of RotaCuts for drilling holes in materials up to ¼” thick. The fractional kit includes cutters from ¼” to ¾” and the metric kit includes sizes from 6mm to 20mm. RotaCut’s are ideal for use in all types of metal fabrication, maintenance and electrical applications, spotweld removal, plug holes for welding, and production environments. Each kit is packaged in a sturdy plastic storage case and includes an arbor assembly, extra pilots, center punch, washers and instructions on use. RotaCut’s can be used in hand-held electric drills with 3/8" chucks and in drill presses. RotaCut sheet metal hole cutters are made of M2 H.S.S., hardened and precision ground. The annular or hollow design cuts only at the periphery of the hole, leaving the center as a solid slug of material. Because there is no center point or "dead zone" as with conventional hole making tools, the annular cutter configuration has demonstrated the ability to drill holes up to 3 times faster and last 10 times longer than twist drills or hole saws. The cutters cut holes that are virtually burr-free and do not deform the surrounding material, even thin sheet metal. RotaCut’s are made in the USA. In addition to the new master kits, Hougen Manufacturing provides machine shops, fabricators, erection and installation crews, and maintenance personnel with a wide range of holemaking equipment, from lightweight ultra low profile drills to large heavy duty production style magnetic drills. Other products offered include a wide assortment of magnetic drill accessories that broaden their application potential, plus a wide range of Rotabroach® annular cutters, heavy-duty industrial annular cutters for machining applications, cutters for holemaking in sheet metal and plate, and Punch-ProÒ Electro-hydraulic Hole Punchers.
