Bridge reamers are types of rotary cutting tools that are fixed onto compatible power tools
that are used to deburr, enlarge, and finish holes in various structural materials to a particular size. They are also called alignment
reamers, construction reamers, or car reamers. Bridge reamer attachment tools include drill presses and milling machines. The rotating reamers create a diameter into the reamed surface into which fasteners are fixed. The reamers have tapered flutes that make it easy for the tool to drill misaligned or rough cut holes in difficult-to-machine materials like structural steel and iron in metalworks that do not require high precision. Typical bridge reamers have three flute heads with a long head and are often used for heavy-duty application areas to ream rivet holes in parts of bridges, rail cars, bridges pressure vessels, and ships. Types of reamers include straight reamers and spiral flute reamers. Spiral flute reamers are tapered to enable the reamer to drill through out- of-line holes that are common in heavy duty structural projects. Get the best selection of bridge reamers at MRO Supply.
