Efficient spot weld removal when access is restricted

Laser Tools says its new spot weld cutter kit (part number 8543) combines a high-quality 8mm HSS twist drill together with a 70mm extender and is designed to drill out or cut through spot-welds allowing for the weld to be broken and the welded panels taken apart.

The flat profile of the drill cutting face produces a burr-free hole leaving the underlying panel undamaged. The titanium nitride (TiN) coating on the spot-weld drill results in a sharp cut plus improved service life. Use on alloy and hardened steel where more heat may be generated.

Spot welds hard to access? The extender offers a useful extra 70mm of reach and is manufactured from S45C carbon steel for great strength and hardness to assure safe spot-weld drilling.

The combination of an efficient spot weld cutter plus the extender makes for speedy spot weld removal and the kit is available now from your Laser Tools stockist.
