About Rocky Mountain Twist
Advancements through technology and process improvements have positioned Rocky Mountain Twist as the quality and performance leader of industrial drill bit manufacturing.
Until recently the process of grinding a drill bit from a solid high-speed steel blank has changed very little over the years. A drill bit produced using traditional manufacturing methods is ground in multiple remote operations within a batch. After each shaping operation the drill bits must be moved “manually” to the next machine or operation. This process is repeated until bits are completely ground. Herein lies the problem, each time a drill bit moves from one operation to the next, the bit is reoriented within a fixture. This constant reorientation can create variances of critical dimensions from one bit to the next. These variations in geometry translate to reduced performance and inconsistencies in hole size.
At RMT, each of their proprietary CNC drill grinding cells transform solid high-speed steel blanks into finished drill bits without leaving the cell or reorientation. Using revolutionary rotary methodology, a drill blank is oriented once, then moves through each manufacturing phase in a precise computer controlled operation. This process innovation ensures the highest degree of repeatable, consistent manufacturing in the industry.
