With the “HSS PointTeQ” metal drill from Bosch, professionals such as installers, electricians, locksmiths, machine engineers and mechanics can reach their work goals particularly quick. Its self-centering drill bit prevents the drill from slipping on the workpiece and ensures easy and quick pilot drilling. This results in a faster drilling rate compared to other entry-level metal drills. Regardless of whether you want to make clearance holes for screwed connections, cable and pipe transits or core holes for threads and rivet joints: All common metal applications for hand-held drills can be performed quickly and efficiently.

Increased productivity and lifetime thanks to reduced wear-and-tear

The fast drilling rate of the “HSS PointTeQ” reduces friction with the material. The tip heats up less than comparable metal drills with standard grinding. It does not become blunt as quickly and the wear-and-tear is reduced – this ensures higher productivity and a longer lifetime for the metal drill. Furthermore, the drill flute is oxide-coated to reduce friction and, therefore, speed up chip removal, making drilling additionally easier and speeding up the work progress.

The new “HSS PointTeQ” metal drill is available in specialist retail outlets now – both individually, in diameters ranging from one to 20 millimeters, and as a set. Tradespeople can choose between five-part sets from €4.95 and 25-part sets up to €32.05. All prices are recommended retail prices excluding VAT. Subject to change.
