Ocean Machinery is proud to announce the release of the
Ocean Penetrator drill bit. The Ocean Penetrator is a taper shank twist
drill bit specifically designed for fast productive drilling of
structural steel profiles with CNC beam drill lines of all types.
The drill features a chip breaker design that quickly
breaks off the chips into small manageable pieces and avoids the long
stringy chips that normally plague drill lines.
The Ocean Penetrator drill bits feature oil coolant
holes that run through the drill bit to cool the center of the drill
while it is drilling through all structural steel profiles including
beams, channel, angle, plates, tube, etc.
This results in exceptional tool life. Our customers
average anywhere from 300 – 500 holes per sharpening1 and are
able to get more than 100 sharpenings per drill bit. This yields in
excess of 30,000 holes per drill bit resulting in significant savings
and improved overall fabricating profitability.
The Ocean Penetrator drill bit is now also available in
a Cobalt coating2. This further improves the drilling speed,
increases the number of holes that can be drilled before resharpening,
and increases your overall profitability.
are also now able to supply the Ocean Penetrator drill bits with a
factory sharpened 170 degree drill point3 as opposed to the
standard 135 degree drill point. To obtain the best performance the
drill must be sharpened to a 170 degree drill point geometry. This is
ideal for structural steel and results in burr free holes that further
reduces costs by eliminating the costly grinding of the exit hole.
The resharpening of the drill bits is a simple one-step
process on the Rush 250 A drill grinder available from Ocean Machinery.
The operator is able to easily resharpen drill bits in less than 2
minutes and this is normally done while the CNC drill line is running,
meaning that the drill resharpening is done during operator idle time.

This further translates into further efficiency as the
drill chips and swarf compress to occupy much less space in your scrap
bin than the stringy chips which fill the bin with air
Ocean Penetrator Drill Bits - Benefits
Much cheaper than mag drill annular cutters. Reduces
the consumable cost from approximately 20c per hole to less than
1/2c – this is 4000% reduction in drill bit costs compared to mag
Much cheaper to run than insert drill bits
(approximately 10X cheaper than insert drill bits)
Simple to re-sharpen – only 1-step process. New 170
degree point further simplifies sharpening process
Faster feed rate = shorter drill time = faster
production. A 213/16” diameter only takes 7 seconds to drill through
Eliminates grinding of exit hole
* Faster Drilling feed rates - The Ocean Penetrator
works best at 7.1 in/min of feed rate - almost 20% faster than regular
twist drill bits. This results in faster drilling times. Click

1 Actual tool life will vary based on a
variety of factors including drill diameter, thickness and hardness of
material being drilled, drill RPM, drill feed rate, drill sharpening
quality, and other factors.
