Allied Machine & Engineering will highlight its 4TEX indexable carbide drill designed for applications that include interrupted cuts and/or high-temperature alloys and stainless steels. The flute spacing of the internal cutting edge side is 1.6 times larger than typical IC drills, the company says. The additional flute space, coupled with dual twisted coolant outlets, increases penetration rates with light-duty machines by enhancing coolant flow and chip evacuation in holemaking processes.

4TEX includes four-sided carbide insert geometries that are optimized for wear resistance. Inserts are available in geometry/coating combinations for all ISO materials including steel, stainless steel, high-temperature alloys, nonferrous metals and iron. The company states that the insert shape improves surface finish, hole quality and penetration rates while eliminating issues from chips winding around the tool.

The 4TEX product line is designed for making shallow 2×D, 3×D and 4×D holes in the 0.472" to 1.850" (12- to 47-mm) range. The drills are stocked in both imperial and metric shanks with standard fractional diameters in ½-mm increments up to 26 mm and in 1-mm increments up to 47 mm.
