WTX Micro - High-performance deep drill

Micro specialists for universal use

Even when working in micro dimensions, the WTX Micro produces the accustomed high WTX Performance drilling quality up to 30xD while maintaining maximum positioning accuracy. 

The 5xD version has been designed as a pilot drill for the WTX Micro deep hole drill, creating the perfect conditions for the micro deep hole drilling process. The outstanding self-centring characteristics of the micro drills mean pilot-drilling/centring can be dispensed with up to and including 8xD.

Whether it is steel, cast iron materials or heat-resistant materials/alloys – our WTX Micro can take on anything!
