Trepan tools are carbide cutting tools used to create cylindrical holes. They are a type of a drill that cuts an annulus and leaves a center core, and they typically have single carbide inserts. They are essentially metal cutting tools used on a wide range of materials for deep hole boring. Using a trepan tool, a circular or round hole can be created and the core material can be removed without cutting up to the center.
Trepans are generally used to cut deep holes and large diameters, and they are frequently used in situations where standard drill bits are not feasible.
In the engineering industry, trepanning presents several advantages:
- It is possible to save the core of the material for reuse on other operations, and this can help reduce material costs.
- During trepanning, only the width of the bit is cut, and this makes trepanning a more efficient and faster alternative to drilling using drills.
- Trepan tools are easy to maintain because trepan bits and wear pads are replaceable without changing the head and stem.
- Trepan tools can be used on a wide range of materials. They can be used on deep hole boring machines and lathes suitably modified.
