The Holland Mechanics High-end rim drilling station is designed to accurately drill spoke holes into carbon and other high end rims. It is possible to to drill all possible spoke patterns into the ultra-light carbon bicycle rims in all angles. Where most existing machines are only able to drill from the outside, these rim drilling machines are capable of drilling spoke holes from the inside and spoke nipple holes from the outside. The outside drilling is optimized for automatic wheel-building, so tools can find the nipples in the same angle as the spoke. This makes it possible to drill at exactly the right angle to allow the spoke to sit in the rim so that it is free of unnecessary warping, thereby increasing reliability. In addition to basic functionality, these machines are capable of drilling different rim types.

  • Capable of drilling 26 inch (571 mm), 28 inch (633, 634, 635, 636, 637 mm) and 650 (595 mm). Minimum inner diameter 433 mm. Maximum outer diameter 637 mm. Minimum rim width 19 mm, maximum rim width 45 mm.

  • Easy to use 5,7 inch, full color touchscreen.

  • A heavy duty vacuum cleaner is capable of vacuuming even the smallest carbon particles. Dust container can be emptied by hand.

  • Heavy duty Kress milling motors are capable of enduring the abrasive environment.

  • Optimizes your rims for automatic wheel building.

  • Capable of drilling the inner and outer holes separately from each other, so the spoke key goes easily on the nipple. 

  • Very accurate positioning of the holes is possible.

  • Expandable with an optional valve stem drilling module.

  • Ergonomic design 

  • Also available are high speed rim drilling machines for aluminium rims.
