A Special Message from KOMET of America, Inc.

Insert drilling of the Highest Caliber

Loading the player ...

KOMET® moves up a notch in the area of insert drilling with the KUB Pentron® . The new tool system offers continuous drilling up to 5 x D, also with performance data of the highest caliber. KOMET has broken completely new ground to develop the new KUB Pentron®. It unites key features in one tool, such as attainable preci-sion, the highest performance parameters and impressive drilling depths. It permits up to 20% higher cut and feed rate values than in-sert drills currently on the market. The KUB Pentron® also provides high performance as seen in its length-to-diameter ratios of 5 x D. It masters extreme machining conditions that were previously only pos-sible in 3 x D. The KUB Pentron® is equipped with two square inserts that have four effective cutting edges each. The internal and external inserts have exactly the same shape. From all-round geometry to soft cutting and what is known as chip breaker geometry, inserts with high perform-ance substrates and coatings are available for the widest variety of materials. Just as the inserts and their respective geometries are patented, so is the basic body. There are three basic holder variants for 3 x D, 4 x D and 5 x D with parallel shank and ABS connection. A special surface treatment ensures optimum chip clearance and sliding properties. In the 14 to 44 millimeter diameter range, the new KUB Pentron® allows you to go up a notch so that insert drilling is possible across the entire range of length-to-diameter ratios right up to 5 x D.
