Aluminum Drill Series Expanded
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.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
