If you need a reliable, high-quality, and advanced annular drill bit for railroad maintenance operations, the Trak-Star Twister™ series is ideal for you and your rail maintenance of way team. 1-5/16” Twister Rail Drill Bits are designed for high performance drilling and are compatible with all common rail drills used in railroad maintenance. They offer excellent value, strength, and on-the-job performance.
As part of the flagship Trak-Star Twister™ line, this 1-5/16” annular drill bit utilizes an extremely durable titanium and aluminum nitride coating (TiAIN) that extends the drill bit’s lifespan.
Not only that, but it also reduces friction and heat while drilling. Tests by the AAR (The Association of American Railroads) found that when drilling into rail, Twister drill bits raised the temperature of the material by only 35° F compared to ambient air temperatures.
This helps reduce the risk of cracking and fracturing in the metal due to thermal stress, which can be a major concern when drilling through hard rail. Shop for all your hydraulic railroad tool and equipment needs with Industry-Railway Suppliers now.
