Automation is the need of the hour which improves production, reduces time for manufacturing them and helps to manufacture economically on a mass scale. Drilling is one of the important manufacturing processes which need to be automated. In conventional drilling process which is the most common way to originating a hole in metal or other materials, for precise hole location, good finish and accurate size. The electro pneumatic circuit helps in converting the conventional drilling to an automated one. The fluid power (air) which is present abundant in nature is compressed using screw type compressor which helps in developing the pressure to required level. The following studies are carried out 1. Time saved by component handling (loading and unloading) using pneumatic clamp, 2. Increase of productivity quantitative and qualitatively, 3. Improved repeatability and accuracy, 4. Less human intervention, indirectly reduction in operator fatigue, 5. Less rejection due to automatic controls, and 6. Minimization of production cost.
