Airbus, Germany, chooses ergonomically designed LBS drills


We rely on the Atlas Copco LBS 24 and LBS 36 drills

“Working with Atlas Copco tools is always a good experience. We rely on the Atlas Copco LBS 24 and LBS 36 drills for final assembly of everything that we hand drill on our aircraft. Thanks to the integrated planebase holder, these tools have exactly the right angle at the point of entry. What’s more, the base holder shortens the drill length, providing superior ergonomics, and optimizes the balance, size and weight of the drills”.
