Seco Tools’ Perfomax indexable insert drill family includes the SD600 modular drill system, which is designed for large and deep hole drilling applications, such as those found in the oil and gas and power generation sectors. The modular drill is said to increase output and can be used for a range of adjustments.
The drill features a 60- to 160-mm diameter range and drilling depths ranging to 10×D. The strong square inserts are available in universal grade T2000D, offering both wear resistance and toughness, and grade T3000D for applications requiring a tougher grade. The modular system relies upon a Graflex connection, which offers rigidity and precision similar to monobloc toolholders.
Can 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.
