Process: Drilling

Overview

Using a drill bit rotated at high speeds, drilling is the process of cutting a hole into material - typically metal, plastic, or wood. Whilst rotating, the drill bit is capable of hollowing out the required hole into the material once it makes direct contact. The type of drilling process, as well as the design of drill used, will vary depending on factors such as the size of the required hole(s). Drilling is used across all different manufacturing sectors. Drills are also available as a consumer product, with many people using hand drills within home improvement projects and DIY.
