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.
Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
Combining a rotating tool with rotating work produces a machining operation that is distinct from standard turning or milling.
