Walter USA has released the DB130 Advance, its smallest solid carbide micro drill

Walter USA has released the DB130 Advance, its smallest solid carbide micro drill with diameters ranging from 0.004" to 0.06" (0.1 to 1.45 mm). With a point angle of 118 degrees and cylindrical shank, the drill meets DIN 1899 standards.

The drill delivers precision and process reliability thanks in part to its micro-grain carbide, which improves cutting edge formation for high-precision applications. Due to its standard range, the drill can be used universally in a range of ISO applications including steels, stainless steel, superalloys and hardened materials. This micro drill can find ready application in general machining, watchmaking, automotive and food, as well as in die and mold.

The Walter DB133 Supreme solid carbide drill is available for diameters of 0.02" (0.5 mm) and larger.

  • Start With The Right Speeds And Feeds

    Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.

  • Inserts For Difficult Materials

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