New P33N modular precision drills 18 February 2019

A new portfolio of P33N precision drills for multitask work environments from Ingersoll Rand offer 20% less weight, better ergonomics and improved visual tool identification.

Designed for the aircraft manufacturing and aerospace maintenance industries, the new products come in straight, pistol, angle and modular versions, which fit different applications like precise drilling and reaming of high-technology materials for the aerospace industry.

“In manufacturing industries ergonomics is valuable as it prevents operator injury and helps to increase productivity. The P33N drill is designed to achieve the perfect dimensions and best in class ergonomic design to ensure maintenance operators can perform their tasks with flexibility and less fatigue, resulting in improved operations for our customers,” explained Jonathan Di Sano, product manager in the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa region at Ingersoll Rand.

The new P33N drills are flexible, powerful and durable with a 20% reduction in weight, better ergonomics and improved visual tool identification. The new P33N drills also come with different colour visuals, which allow operators to quickly identify the tool’s speed and avoid mistakes when selecting the tool in the working environment.

Lastly, the new tools are covered with soft-touch polyurethane PU paint, which provides a more ergonomic and secure grip than cold metal housing and reduces vibrations. The radius transition between the housing and nose gives users a sense of where their hand is placed on the tool, minimising the pressure points and reducing slippage while operating. For additional operator’s safety, the new P33N drills feature a proven and ergonomic safety lever.
