Drilling errors cause major process delays, incur significant costs and compromise quality. In the airframe assembly, only one-third of the holes are drilled using handheld tools. Yet, handheld drilling accounts for up to 65% of assembly cost, 85% of quality issues and 80% of time lost to injury.
Because each aircraft assembled requires millions of holes. Holes not drilled by robots - but by people.
To cater to an ever-growing backlog, we need an aircraft drill that enhances human performance: that makes its user more productive. To do that, we need to embrace the human factor.
That's why we created EBB26 - a drill made for people to make more.
A cordless aircraft drill to make users more mobile. Because when operators can move freely and can seamlessly switch between tasks, productivity is at its best.
Each year, up to 50 assembly line accidents occur due to pneumatic hoses. By going cordless, we remove trip hazards - making movement safe and simple while eliminating unnecessary costs.
Save up to €2.1M* per year on accidents.
*per 3000 employees
A precise battery drill that provides its user with essential feedback to improve accuracy. Because when operators make fewer mistakes, productivity increases - and quality is not compromised.
Approximately 50% of oversized holes can be avoided. Thanks to advanced features and reduced runout, we improve accuracy and hole quality - ensuring identical holes for every operator, in every material.
Save up to €60K per operator, per day.*
*for an operator drilling 600 holes per day
A drill designed for aerospace drilling. With the same weight as a pneumatic tool, an ergonomic design and a low sound level, EBB26 makes drilling less of a strain on the operator. That means keeping users healthy, engaged and performing at their very best.
EBB26 is a balanced tool for safe drilling in every position, designed to reduce the risk of wrist injury and minimize strain on the user. Because to increase productivity, it's essential to have aerospace tools that bring out the best in their users - letting them do more work with less effort.
Save up to €2.5M* on workplace injuries.
