We can drill holes into virtually all of our held substrates: Acrylic; Polycarbonate; Foam PVC; Aluminium Composite. For jobs without a CAD file we will need both the hole size and the centre (dimension from the edge of the panel to the centre of the hole) we are drilling to. We can drill holes to suit stand-offs when required, which are available in a range of finishes and sizes.
Based on customer needs, panel dimensions and the thickness of the material, we will use one of our various different services to drill the holes:
When drilling large panels or more intricate holes, we will often use our CNC router. The CNC can also accommodate larger hole sizes.
When a high level of accuracy is needed or where polished holes are required, we can offer a laser cutting service.
We can offer manual drilling services where machining is not practical or cost effective. This enables us to deal with small one off jobs where setting up machinery would be costly.
Countersunk and Bored holes
We can both countersink and bore holes to fit screws, stand offs and bolts flush to a panel.
Either through manual fabrication or CNC routing, countersunk holes can be incorporated to a drill hole. A countersunk hole is drilled when a v-shaped head on a screw is present. When a circular head is present on a stand-off, screw or bolt, a bore hole can be introduced for a flush finish on a panel. Boring can only be completed through CNC routing.
