Walter Titex’s XD70 drill is designed to reach a drilling depth of 70×D without pecking, exceeding standard depths of 30×D. The company says this increase in performance is due to three structural and manufacturing features of the drill: the company’s new method for producing solid carbide blanks, use of a special grinding process in the finishing procedure, and internal coolant channels that make high-pressure coolant systems unnecessary.
The drill is available in diameters ranging from 0.197" to 0.472" (5 to 12 mm) with two tip coatings, TFP for soft steels and XPL for cast iron.
