We are celebrating the decades of T-DRILL, as the T-DRILL technology is turning 50 years, Brand 40 years and T-DRILL Oy in its present form 30 years. Welcome to join us!

Finland is a northern country with four seasons.

Life in Finland thrives in numerous small towns. One such town is Laihia – the home of T-DRILL, a globally leading provider of tube and pipe fabrication solutions.

T-DRILL, a subsidiary of Leinolat Group, runs a component factory near Laihia, in Isokyrö. The Atlanta subsidiary is responsible for sales and service in the United States, Canada and Mexico. 

For thirty years, T-DRILL Oy has in its present form kept developing solutions for diverse applications in many industries, resulting in countless success stories in more than seventy countries.

The basis of T-DRILL’s success is customer orientation and understanding of customer’s needs, continuous development, and world-class manufacturing.

It all started in the 1960’s with a revolutionary innovation. When a Finnish engineer developed the world’s first tee forming tool – or a Collaring Machine – as we call it, T-DRILL emerged.

The collaring method is based on an extremely simple but brilliant idea of producing outlets to branch connections directly from run pipe material. This patented T-DRILL method is well known all over the world and is still one of the major innovations in the field.

Today, we use the same principle but we refined it through decades of continuous improvements. A culture of continuous development and improvement enables us to offer the best solutions in the market – not only for today’s demands, but also to respond to tomorrow’s needs. Our product range now starts from portable machine tools to flexible customized tube fabrication systems of the highest automation level. 

Needless to say, the key factor is our people. The T-DRILL staff includes professionals who have committed themselves to this work for more than three decades. It is them, we, who develop the technological concepts and turn designs into amazing products.  

We listen to our customers and are able to offer the exact solution to address present needs and enable future success. Worldwide support is always available and the customer’s productivity is of utmost importance to us.

The original T-DRILL collaring method was developed for plumbers and mechanical contractors. Chipless cutting, flanging, and end-forming complete the T-DRILL range, offering solutions for six main sectors:

HVAC Applications
Automotive Industry
Stainless Process Pipes
Plumbing and mechanical contractors
Special Applications

These are the six primary sectors – but if you look around, you will notice that there are tubes and pipes in different materials, shapes, and sizes practically everywhere. Both T-DRILL Collaring and Flanging technologies have become an industry standard recognized worldwide and approved by several key institutions.
You can make collars, cut to length, and form tube ends with T-DRILL technologies faster and more accurately than with any other method – saving time, money, and material.

The modular design of T-DRILL machines and equipment allows us to meet industry-specific requirements and offer flexible customized tube and pipe manufacturing solutions for a vast variety of tubing needs.

 As a pioneer in the tube and pipe fabrication field, we will continue to innovate what’s next.

Contact us and we will gladly help you determine the optimal solution for all your tube and pipe processing needs.
