Walter's D4120 Drill Speeds Chip Removal
Walter USA’s D4120 is an indexable insert drill from the P484 family that is designed for wear-resistance and longer tool life.
Walter USA’s D4120 indexable insert drill from the P484 family is designed for wear-resistance and longer tool life. The drill’s polished flute surfaces facilitate chip removal, process reliability and close hole tolerance. A wiper cutting edge on the periphery insert, flutes designed for continuous chip evacuation and a coolant-through system (one per cutting edge) also contribute to these benefits.
Cutting costs are kept lower because of the inserts’ four cutting edges and the long tool life characteristics provided by Tiger Tec Silver grades, the company says. The product is suitable for ISO material groups:
The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
