Tungaloy Adds Changeable-Head Tool to Drilling Grade Series
Tungaloy is expanding its AH9130 drill head grade series to include the DMP drill head line from the DrillMeister changeable-head drill series. A self-locking interface connects the drill head and tool body to simplify tool changes. Operators can replace the tool without removing the drill body from the adapter or re-measuring tool offset values,
This AH9130-grade expansion encompasses the DMP line of general-purpose drilling, succeeding the DMC drill head for precision drilling. Developed specifically for drilling applications, AH9130 is a nano-multilayer PVD coating consisting of three layers. This coating configuration is designed to provide longer, more predictable tool life by adding wear, fracture and oxidation resistance as well as resistance to buildup and delamination.
You know how to machine metals, but what about plastic machining? More specifically, glass-fiber-reinforced plastic? This machine shop has it figured out.
By using specialized cutter geometry and incorporating smooth finishes with tough coatings, Toolmex Corp., created an end mill well suited to cut aluminum aggressively. This tool called the "Mako" is part of the SharC line of specialized tools from the same company.
Part of a series of articles on more efficient machining of pockets in titanium parts, this article makes the case for a tool with many cutting edges, and describes how best to apply it.
