4. Preparation
For the proper functioning of the Flow2go unit when thermal drilling and for industrial safety
reasons, the following must be taken into account:
4.1.
Mounting the handles on the drill base
Please screw the 3 handles enclosed fully up to the stop in the openings provided for this purpose on
the capstan shaft.
4.2.
Mounting the tool holder
Only the enclosed tool holder (see Figure)
should be used for thermal drilling. To use
it the three-jaw chuck pre-mounted on the
drill must first be removed. For this fully
unscrew the drill chuck and while holding
up the spindle unscrew the inner retaining
screw (where present) with a suitable
screwdriver to the right (N.B.: left-hand thread!). Please refer to the instructions for using the drill for
further information.
Retaining screw with left-hand thread.
The tool holder must be screwed on fully and firmly tightened. Then the tool holder must also be resecured from inside with the enclosed short retaining screw.
Always use only tools and accessories that are in perfect condition!
The tool shafts must be in perfect condition and free of contaminants. They must not show any signs
of damage.
The collet in the tool holder should be carefully checked before using a drill and if necessary cleaned
or in case of damage replaced.
Mobile connecting leads should not be stretched under tension. All damage should be avoided as this
may cause danger due to the electric current. Do not use the drill if the connecting leads are damaged.
First have the equipment repaired by an authorised specialist firm.

5. Use and general application
5.1.
Mains power
Please check the mains voltage first. The mains voltage indicated on the hand drill must correspond
with the electric mains supply.
5.2.
Mounting the drill on the drill stand
1. If necessary loosen clamping nut (socket, hexagonal socket head) of the circular clamp.
2. Insert the hand drill unit vertically into the collar as far as the stop.
3. Now hand tighten the clamping screw.
Should the drill be pushed upwards out of the collar during drilling because of the
axial force occurring, immediately stop the drilling process and repeat steps 1-3.
NOTE
Make sure that the surface on which the drill stand is placed is level. If necessary the base plate of
the drill stand must be fixed firmly to this surface with suitable screw fasteners
5.3.
Deactivating the percussion stage
When using a hammer drill, the hammer function must be deactivated for thermal drilling and
flowtapping. Switch the drill over to the normal drill function.

5.4.
Inserting the collet
1. Insert the collet at a slight angle into the screwed cap and turn both using light pressure in
opposite directions until the collet perceptibly locks and sits vertically in the screwed cap. The
collet should no longer fall out on its own.
Nut der Spannzange = Groove of collet, Exzenterring = Eccentric ring, Markierung = Marking
2. Now screw both together onto the drill chuck such that the tool shaft can then be inserted with
slight suction.
5.5.
Inserting the FLOWDRILL® tools
The Flowdrill or Flowtap is inserted with the tool holder already mounted and the screwed cap
including collet lightly tightened. All tools must be inserted fully as far as the stop. Then hand tighten
the screwed cap. To fully tighten the tools please use the enclosed spanners (spanner SW19 / openended spanner SW25).
5.6.
Mains connection
Connect the mains plug to the mains supply. If you are using an extension cable, ensure that it is
designed for the rating of the machine.

Positioning the work piece
Please secure the work piece to be machined in the vice firmly, horizontally and free of vibration.
Position the work piece such that you only drill between the jaws of the vice, never outside them.
Position the vice on the drill stand. In particular make sure that you only drill perpendicularly to the
surface. For circular tubes please pay special attention so that you only drill on the uppermost point of
the round tube.

5.10. Switching the motor on/off
To switch on the motor please press the pushbutton (1) and lock this by pressing in the button on the
side (2).
(1)
(2)
To switch off the motor press the pushbutton again as far as the stop – this automatically unlocks it –
and release it again. Wait until the motor has come to a complete standstill.
5.11. The thermal drilling process
Picture sequence from left to right
Move drill close to the
surface and press
down lightly, then
constantly increase
pressure.
As the resistance
eases, continually
increase the feed
rate.
Do not interrupt the
process, but proceed
with continually
accelerated movement
and gradually form the
bush.
When forming the
collar (bead) reduce
the feed slightly. Do
not form an
excessively flat collar.
After thermal drilling
raise the drill again
without delay!
Depending on the material type, thermal drilling requires a different force to be exerted (high-grade
steel = hard, aluminium = soft). Drill with a continually increasing pressure.
You will recognise too high a pressure
a) From a clearly audible reduction in the drill speed. For safety purposes the integrated
electronics of the motor automatically turn the hand drill unit off.
b) From deformation of the component surface.
In both cases, please reduce the contact pressure immediately. Greater pressure does not speed up
drilling, the drill wears out more quickly and the unit is overloaded.
5.12. Machining time and drilling intervals
As a guideline for thermal drilling, a machining time of approx. 5 seconds should be adhered to.
A maximum of 4 thermal drill holes per minute should be made!
We recommend that the operation of the drill is then turned off for 2 minutes.

Mobile thermal drilling
NOTE
Please ensure that the component surface is dry or when in the drilling position and is
free of water/oil and other strong contaminants. Do not use any unauthorised
lubricants or releasing agents for thermal drilling on this mobile drill base! Our special
releasing agent FDKS is available as an option for thermal drilling.
5.13. Flowtapping with Flowtap
 Change the tool and replace the Flowdrill with the Flowtap.
NOTE
To hold the optionally available M4 flowtap you require a (further smaller) collet of type
ER16Ø4mm that is available as an accessory.
Set the required rotational speed (tortoise + A = approx. 150min-1).
Position the Flowtap accurately over the drill hole.
Position the component and the vice.
Lubricate the Flowtap well before each use with FTMZ and press lightly into the material. The
Flowtap rotates automatically.
 Always guide the process when moving in and out by hand. If possible the full operating range of
the Flowtap should be used. Take into account here the maximum possible penetration depth.
 Stop the unit and now change the direction of rotation of the spindle to LEFT TURN and press the
pushbutton again. Guide the removal of the Flowtap by hand.

TIP 1: To stop the flowtap promptly when inserting do not lock the pushbutton but
keep the button pressed with your hand.

TIP 2: Alternatively you can also use the Flowtap in a high-performance battery
operated drill and low speed step and insert the Flowtap by guiding it freely.

TIP 3: You will obtain optimum starting values and load capacities with (grease- or oilfree) taps that are then cleaned.

6. Maintenance
6.1.
Flowdrill
The friction or contact surfaces of the Flowdrill have the tendency for foreign material to adhere, which
in places coats the drill. This adhesion tendency is very material-dependent and cannot be avoided
entirely. For this reason clean the Flowdrill regularly with an emery cloth and remove adhesions
promptly.
New condition
6.2.
Tool with adhesions
Cleaning while rotating with emery
cloth
Flowtap
The Flowtap should never be used dry, but always in conjunction with special tapping oil (e.g. FTMZ
from Flowdrill®). Make sure the tapping flanks are clean and free of dirt and scratches. Clean the
Flowtap if necessary with a soft wire brush and/or compressed air.
6.3.
Tool holder and collet
Regularly clean the tool holder from inside and remove all contamination in the gaps of the collet.
Damaged collet

6.4.
Guide system
Regularly check the guide system. This must if necessary be lubricated or readjusted. To readjust
please loosen the lock nuts (12) and cylindrical head screws (13) of the guide rail (2) and evenly
tighten the adjustment screws (11). Then retighten first the cylindrical
head screws and then the lock nuts.
Items (2, 11, 12, 13) according to exploded drawing Section 9.
6.5.
Conversion for left hand operation
The capstan can be easily converted for left hand operation. To do this raise the guides to the upper
stop and then loosen the cross-head screw (7) and remove this together with the washer (18).
Completely remove the shaft (6) from the capstan and mount this in the reverse order from the left.
Items (6, 7, 18) according to exploded drawing Section 9.
6.6.
Switches and cables
Regularly check switches, cables and anti-kink protection for damage.
The cable must not come into contact with the hot component or tool surface!
Repairs should only be carried out by an authorised specialist firm.
NOTE
The tool life depends among other things on:
- Process time
- Material thickness
- Material type (e.g. steel versus stainless steel)
- Care and maintenance
- Condition of the accessories: in particular tool holder and collet
