The tools are often designed as a hollow drill and placed in the tool holder either with a cone adaptor, a vendor-specific solution with facing systems, or placed directly onto the spindle.
The study has also revealed evidence of dental inlays: a shallow hole was drilled into the front face of the tooth enamel (using a reed or bone hollow drill and an abrasive such as sand or jade dust), sometimes reaching the dentine within.
The inner diameter of the hollow drill gradually increases from the tip to the shank end to prevent the frictional forces that can disintegrate the extracted sample.
The Corporation manufactures and markets bar and flat rolled stainless steels, carbon and low alloy steel bar products, vacuum arc and electro slag remelted steels, mold, tool and die steels and hollow drill and solid mining steels.
Internal chip evacuation through the hollow drill shaft, provided there is ample coolant, eliminates all the problems of chip binding and jamming, which often occur with conventional gundrills.
Using a hollow drill, they pulled up cores of sandy sediment that formed the ocean bottom many millennia ago.
As soon as a core filled the hollow drill, it was carefully broken off by copper chisel and mallet; this technology allowed ancient drill-tubes to reach to the bottom of deep vessels, and explains why TRTD stone weights were placed high up the shaft.

Internal chip evacuation--through the hollow drill shaft--eliminates all the problems of chip binding and jamming which often occur with conventional deep hole drills.
In their study, Paull and his colleagues trapped samples in a pressurized hollow drill bit, which kept the gases from escaping or decomposing as they were brought to the ocean surface.
Working in water depths of 2,800 meters, the researchers penetrated 700 meters below the seafloor with a hollow drill bit that cuts away a core of sediment the diameter of a soda can.
BTA methods, such as Sandvik's Ejector drilling system, are based on a drill design that presents multi-bit cemented carbide to the drilling face and sucks chips out through the center of a hollow drill tube.
