Step Drills

Step drills combine two different cut diameters into a single tool; this can reduce the time it takes to change out drills during production. Step drills are very versatile, and can eliminate the need for multiple tools for specific applications. Creating a hole with a chamfer, countersink, or simply drilling two diameters are all possible options. 

  • Many point styles and specialty shank options
  • Coolant-thru available
  • PVD coating and high surface finish

Multiple-Step Drills

Sometimes two diameters aren’t enough! Cougar has designed multi-step drills for all types of applications. Holes with multiple diameters can be a pain, but Cougar makes it a breeze. Stop changing out tools multiple times during production, and get the performance and time savings you need for your project!
