Adjust labor times for drilling

In Drill Maintenance, you can view, add and modify drill time information to match the time standards of your shop. You can also add new drill types or create a list of drill rates. The drill times set in Drill Maintenance are used when you directly apply them to an estimating job as additional labor.

The labor time entered in Drill Maintenance maintenance will be applied according to the drill settings determined in the Fabrication Information - Operations dialog box. For more information, see Modify labor operation settings. Note that when the thickness that you have defined for punching is greater than the punch capacity, Tekla EPM automatically switches to drill times.
