Reisser expands power tool accessory line-up with new tile drill range

Reisser’s expansion of its power tool accessory programme has moved into its next phase with the launch of three new product ranges, designed to make drilling in tiles an easier and less complicated process.

The new launches include:

  • Spear Tip drill for ceramic wall tiles
  • Premium drill for ceramic and medium hardness porcelain tiles
  • Diamond drill for harder porcelain

The entry level Spear Tip tile drills provide a simple and economic method of drilling into softer ceramic wall tiles and glass. The sharp, cross ground carbide tip breaks the hard surface glaze, allowing the tip to pass through the body of the tile easily.

The Premium product is designed for harder tiles beyond the range of the standard drill. The high grade, split point tungsten carbide tip is designed to penetrate ceramic and porcelain tiles up to PEI Grade 3. High temperature brazing keeps the tip securely in the shank, and removes the requirement for water cooling.

For very hard porcelain tiles in the hardness range of PEI Grades 4 to 5, the Diamond drill is recommended. Vacuum brazing keeps the diamond grit securely attached to the tool body, whilst the integral wax lubricant - in drills up to 16mm diameter - helps to cool the cutting edge. Diameters over 20mm have a pilot drill to prevent the tool from skating over the tile surface.

A leaflet explaining the features and benefits of each range, along with useful tips on how to use the drills more effectively and decrease cost per hole are available on request.
