Precision Cutting Tools’ FXC series of solid carbide straight flute drills is designed for drilling aluminum alloys and for gray cast iron applications such as those required in the automotive and aerospace industries. According to the company, the drills are suitable for operations that require tight-tolerance holes, and they can achieve higher speeds and feeds than standard twist drills, reducing cycle times. The tools feature a total of four margins for increased stability and accuracy. In addition, the combination of coolant-hole geometry and a 130-degree point enables efficient chip evacuation for smooth surface finish, the company says. The drills are PVD-coated with ZircoPlus for a longer tool life. They are made to order and are available in sizes ranging from 5×D to 16×D.
