Precihole names Absolute exclusive importer

Absolute Machine Tools, Lorain, Ohio, has been appointed the exclusive importer for deep-hole drilling machines manufactured by Precihole Machine Tools Ltd. Precihole is one of the worlds’ largest producers of deep-hole drilling and hole finishing machines. 

Parag Kulkarni, Precihole sales and development manager, stated, “We chose Absolute Machine Tools to partner with because of their experience with the importation of machine tools and their reputation for outstanding customer service and support.” All of the Precihole product line will be sold and serviced by Absolute and its experienced distributor network.

Precihole products consist of deep-hole drilling machines commonly known as gundrilling machines and BTA boring and trepanning machines with ID capability up to 16 inches and hole lengths of 40 feet. Also provided are 3-axis drilling machines for the mold and die industry or any application that requires asymmetric holes to be drilled. In addition, Precihole is one of the few manufacturers to provide skiving and burnishing machines to perform final hole sizing and surface finishing with a single tool passage through a cylindrical part.

The Precihole product line also includes machines designed for reaming, counter-boring, firearm barrel rifling, taper boring, honing and trepanning applications. A new machine will be introduced this summer in North America for facing, centering and chamfering. These machines will have multiple OD sizes and will automatically clamp and center any tubular parts while machining both part ends simultaneously.

Steve Ortner, president and owner of Absolute Machine Tools, observed, “The number of operations that can be addressed by Precihole machines will bring another dimension to the applications we can solve for our customers, and they do it for a great value.”

Precihole Machine Tools is located in Mumbai, India, and has been providing machine tools to Asia, Europe and South America for more than a quarter of a century. Having just completed a modern 75,000 square-foot assembly facility, it is ready to supply machines to the North American market. Precihole is a global supplier, and uses Fanuc and Siemens CNC controls, German ballscrews, bearings from Japan, and motors from the United States.

Absolute Machine Tools has offices in Lorain, Ohio, Livonia, Mich., and Mason, Ohio. It has a network of machine tool distributors in the U.S. and Canada.
