Indexable Drill Uses Four Insert Sides

Sumitomo’s WDX indexable drills are designed for large diameter hole drilling. The accurately drill can also perform turning and boring operations, the company says. The drill’s nickel-plated steel body is said to reduce inventory costs by accepting the same insert geometry for both the outer and inner cutting edges and allowing the use of all four of the insert’s cutting edges.
