Gun Drills

For every task a suitable gun drill

For a diameter-length-ratio  from 15xD one generally refers to gun drilling. Gun drills are for example applied for the machining of camshafts, crankshafts, drive shafts, injectors, drill pipes for oil production, in the medical and the food industry. Dependent on the requirements of the hole, the machine conditions, the batch size and the drilling depth Gühring determines the most economically efficient tool option.

Deep hole drilling with solid carbide spiral fluted gun drill


With spiral deep hole drills type RT 100 T available as part of an extended ex-stock programme for the drilling depths 15xD,  20xD, 25xD, 30xD and 40xD, the user benefits from maximum feed rates and cutting speeds and therefore benefits from a significant reduction in manufacturing times. Gühring achieves these advantages thanks to the following features:

  • Optimised flute cross-section gun drilling
    The spiral deep hole drills have a groove geometry specially adapted to the special requirements for optimum chip transport from deep holes.
  • Maximum coolant duct cross-section
    To optimally supply the cutting edge with lubricant, the tools possess coolant ducts with maximum cross-section. This ensures an effective lubricant supply to the cutting edge and excellent chip evacuation.
  • Problem-free chips
    The aforementioned factors in combination with the perfectly adapted cutting parameters to suit the application result in chips that are evacuated problem-free even from deep holes. Therefore, chip congestion and the herewith combined jamming of the tool is effectively prevented.
  • Wear resistant cutting edges
    Thanks to the head coating with Gühring’s A-coating (TiAlN) the heavily stressed cutting edge area is effectively protected against wear.
  • HA shank for accurate clamping
    For clamping with hydraulic chucks from Gühring’s GM 300 programme the RT 100 T ex-stock range is equipped with a HA shank, shank tolerance h6. The combination of RT 100 T and hydraulic chuck guarantees maximum concentricity, extreme clamping force, minimal imbalance and optimal economic efficiency.
  • Intermediate dimensions & special lengths
    In addition to the ex-stock programme ensures Gühring continues to provide RT 100 T as a special tool to customer requirements. We provide intermediate dimensions for the ex-stock range with a maximum drilling depth up to 40 x D / a maximum total length up to 400 mm.
  • MQL suitable
    Thanks to the modification of the shank to the for MQL machining optimised shank end the ex-stock tools are also optimally suited for MQL machining.
