OSG USA’s A-Drill series includes the Exocard AD, ADO, ADO-SUS and ADF drills. 

Suitable for both ferrous and non-ferrous materials, the Exocarb AD and ADO carbide drills are designed to provide high point strength with low cutting force. EgiAs coating, which features high wear and heat resistance characteristics, contributes to extended tool life.  A coolant-through option is available.

The Exocarb ADO-SUS coolant-fed carbide drill features a coolant hole shape and tool geometry designed specifically for drilling difficult-to-machine materials like stainless steel and titanium.

The Exocarb ADF carbide flat drill is designed to machine flat holes without a separate end mill. One-step drilling reduces machining time and eases tool management. It is designed for work on inclined surfaces and curved surfaces and can perform counterboring, eccentric-hole and thin-plate operations.

    Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.

  • Drill And Bore With A Face Mill

    Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
