In a series of releases, Charlotte, N.C.-based Bohle America, subsidiary of Germany’s Bohle Group, introduced the Pico Drill 100, Aqua Drill and Glass Buddy glass analyzer.

For processing flat glass, the portable Pico Drill 100 precision drilling machine uses diamond core drills. Placed directly on top of the glass, a rubber ring prevents the drill from slipping while integrated suction holders provide a secure fix to the surface of the piece to be drilled, according to a company release. An optional laser offers additional precision in locating the drill point. A supply valve at the side of the machine delivers coolant to the drill bit. Powered by a 1.15-kilowatt motor, drill speeds can continuously vary from 500 revolutions per minute to 1700 rpms.

The cordless Aqua Drill can be used for fixed floor and wall tiles in wet room and kitchen environments. It nearly eliminates cracked and broken tiles caused by drilling when fitting glass shower screens, kitchen exhaust hoods and other fixtures, according to a company release. The drill creates hole diameters between 0.20 inches and 2.76 inches, and provides vibration-free and dimensionally stable drilling. For diamond drill use, the machine has speed control up to 2000 rpm and standard water cooling.

The Glass Buddy, a comprehensive pocket-sized glass analyzer, uses laser technology to supply parameters such as glass thickness, configuration of panes, coatings and PVB films. The product measures single-pane glass up to 13/16-inch thick, as well as laminated glass, insulating glass and bullet-proof glass up to a 2-inch thickness and to 0.004-inch accuracy, according to a company release. It detects the positions of coatings, as well as PVB film number, thickness and positions. Analyzer memory holds 99 measurements, and USB interface uploads data to a PC.
