Staggered holes in the drill


we are often required to drill holes in a staggered pattern, per the below example. Hoes are on a regular pattern but alternating. Could be flange or web.

Currently we are drilling two rows of holes to achieve this

Is this something that can be added to the drill? It's possible to 'offset' a hole group, but not shift them relative to each other.

  • Hi Mike,

    This is Staggered hole pattern and currently this is not possible to achieve in one go. you need to twice to get first and second row. And yes this need to be enhanced so that one can place staggered holes in one go. We would request you to log a Service Request for this so that we can report an Enhancement.

    Looking forward to your update.
