OSG Tap & Die has added coolant-through capabilities to its Hy-Pro Carb 3D and 5D drill series to enable higher feeds and metal removal rates. The drills’ point and flute geometries are designed to reduce thrust forces and chip size. A multi-layered TiAlN coating resists thermo-cracking from heat to improve wear resistance. Common DIN shank sizes are designed to improve rigidity and reduce the number of toolholders needed to accommodate them.
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
