Drilling Applications


Drilling requires precision, but often requires either high repetition with light tools or reaching and positioning with heavy tools – or both. zeroG® can help:

  1. Productivity Boost
    • Operators often must drill hundreds or even thousands of holes. To avoid injuries, companies have been required to use light drills...until now. zeroG® lets operators use heavy drills even for highly repetitive tasks.
    • Whether a drill is light or heavy, fatigue is a factor, requiring frequent breaks. zeroG® arms reduce or eliminate fatigue.
  2. Reduce Injuries
    • Drills can be very heavy, posing risk of both repetitive stress injuries and accidents zeroG® significantly reduces these injuries by eliminating virtually ALL of the drill's weight.
  3. Improve quality
    • zeroG® arms let drilling operators use their fine motor skills since they do not need to support the weight of the drill.
