Precision Cutting Tools’ AXC series drill features a triple-margin drill point designed to create a stronger, more-symmetrical, self-centering end geometry. The accurate drill is well-suited for high-penetration applications in aluminum, the company says. A 15-degree internal coolant design improves chip evacuation and controls temperatures throughout machining. The spiral-fluted, right-hand drills are available in diameters ranging from 3 to 20 mm with 3×D to 30×D models. The drills are coated with Z-Power (ZrN) to increase wear resistance.
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.
