Kyocera SGS Precision Tools has expanded its Hi-PerCarb 131N series of drills such that it now includes 417 new items. These new line items will be in 3×D TB coated and uncoated configurations as well as 5×D uncoated configurations. The key features designed into the drill are said to offer application benefits not only beyond that of standard carbide drills, but also other high-performance drills. The tool’s features were developed specifically to address problems commonly encountered during high-production drilling, the company says.
The company’s in-house metallurgical lab enables it to inspect raw material, ensuring that only the best raw carbide is made into the finished product.
