Allied Machine & Engineering’s 4TEX indexable carbide insert drilling system is designed to create optimal chip formation for efficient evacuation in hole making processes. The system is said to be especially useful in challenging applications that include interrupted cuts or drilling high-temperature alloys and stainless steels. The indexable insert drill makes shallow 2xD, 3xD and 4xD holes in the 0.472"-1.850" (12-47 mm) range.

According to the company, the drill’s design increases strength, improves hole size and straightness. The flute space of the internal cutting edge side, where chips often cluster, is 1.6x larger than other IC drills, the company says. Dual twisted coolant outlets are said to improve penetration rates by enhancing coolant flow and chip evacuation.

The insert geometries are optimized for wear resistance and are available in geometry/coating combinations for ISO materials including steel, stainless steel, high-temperature alloys, non-ferrous and iron. The insert shape improves surface finish, hole quality and penetration rates while eliminating issues from chips winding around the tool. The drills are available in either imperial and metric shanks with standard fractional diameters, as well as every ½ mm diameter to as much as 26 mm and every 1 mm to as much as 47 mm.
