Perfect Point has developed a unique technology used to remove fasteners from aircraft. The E-drill’s EDM cut is precisely controlled to a speciﬁc depth, located accurately over the fastener, and cooled by a stream of high-pressure/highflow coolant. These features make the E-drill fastener removal process consistent, reliable, and repeatable, while its rugged simplicity enables users to train fast and reach proﬁciency in record time.

The S-Blaster is the perfect tool for removing paint and residue from small areas. The handheld tool clears off paint, debris and residue from all types of fasteners including phillips head screws. This closed loop system has a HEPA filter and is completely self contained which significantly reduces the costs and risks associated with the removal of toxic coatings and paints.
The key to the E-drill Fastener Separation Technology(FST) process is LOCATION, it’s why our damage rate is less than 1%. A magnifying “bombsight” with circular rings, interchangeable apertures, or a mechanical locking mechanism is placed inside the vacuum locator tool to align to the center of the fastener.
Once the location is set, the locator tooling is held in place using vacuum. The hand tool is then inserted in the locator tool to make the cut. Locator tools are key to the “Perfect Cut” and when used correctly, completely eliminates accidental damage to the structure.
The Single Shot Air Punch is designed to remove the flange heads from fasteners that have been cut using the E-drill. It is provided with a set of three adapters to ﬁt 5/32”, 3/16” and 1/4” fastener sizes (other sizes available upon request). The nose adapter engages in the E-drill cut groove to prevent misalignment. The Air Punch uses a single strike the fastener pin and no other part of the structure to provide a better, faster, and safer removal.
SSAP reduces potential damage to the structure, and signiﬁcantly reduces the chance of impact injury and repetitive motion injury to the operator.
