Emuge’s EF step drill is a high-penetration rate solid carbide drill that can chamfer and drill in one operation, saving time. It also provides a more accurate hole-to-chamfer location and improves hole preparation for tapping or thread milling. The tools feature a double-margin design on the minor diameter for round threaded hole size. Web construction is adjusted for each diameter to improve chip evacuation efficiency.

The EF step drill stock program includes a range of sizes from 2.8 to 15.5 mm minor diameter, UNC/UNF (No. 6-32, 0.625" to 11"), M/MF (M3 to M18) and a full range of sizes in 2×D and 3.5×D lengths. Tools have a coolant-through, four-margin design with TiAIN-T14 coating. They can cut a range of materials and are available in cut or form thread diameters.

    Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.
