Ever since the first iron bridge was constructed in the late 1700s, there has been a need to drill holes in metal used for structural and civil engineering projects. Structural steel has long since taken over from iron as the preferred material and AMEC's structural steel drilling system leads the way delivering the high performance, accuracy and repeatability demanded in these applications.
Dedicated structural steelwork tool holders and a choice of thin wall and notch point geometries, together with a diverse range of insert substrates and coatings enable us to provide the best structural steel drilling solution.
Our latest tool innovation, the GEN3SYS high penetration drilling system is rapidly being adopted as the new benchmark for structural steel drilling applications due to its high accuracy, repeatability and exceptionally long tool life delivered by a by a combination of new cutting edge geometry and advanced coatings and substrates.
AMEC tooling is also used in a wide range of machining and manufacturing applications producing a diverse array of components and products civil engineering, construction and building services systems.
