Walter USA’s DC150 Perform 5×Dc is designed to be a versatile and cost-effective solid carbide drill that can be used with all materials and with a broad range of workpieces. The drill, a part of the DC150 Perform Line, can be used for small and medium batch sizes. It is said to offer high precision and process reliability.
The DC150 Perform 5×Dc is designed to be used without internal coolant. It offers wear resistance and effective chip evacuation along with geometry which includes a 140-degree point angle for positioning accuracy.
Until now, the DC150 Perform line included length-to-diameter ratios of 3, 5, 8, and 12×Dc, all with internal coolant capability. The 5×Dc drill for use with external coolant complements the existing 3×Dc offering for external coolant, the company says.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
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.
