Typhoon portable, automatic lubrication for aerospace drilling

The Typhoon is designed to keep pace with the demands of airframe drilling. The pneumatic positive and peck-feed drill systems used in these applications endure constant use and must deliver top performance in an industry where precision is critical. The Typhoon allows airframe builders to lubricate their drills and protect their air motors in one portable, mobile and productive unit.

From the instant you pull the air tool's trigger, the dual-output Typhoon delivers the proper amount of lubricant to protect both your cutting tool and the air motor. Its compact design, built-in hose storage, and ergonomic handle make the Typhoon  easy to transport and operate. Simple, independent adjustment of air and fluid flow rates means the system can provide proper lubricant for a broad variety of different cutting tools and materials.
