YG-1's Dream Drills Pro Optimized for Steel, Cast Iron
The Dream Drills Pro tools are made with micrograin carbide for core strength and longer tool life, and feature the company’s wave-shaped cutting edge to reduce cutting forces.
YG-1 has beefed up its Dream Drills line-up with the new Dream Drills Pro line, which is optimized for machining in steel and cast iron. According to the company, the main advantages of these tools are increased cutting speeds and tool life.
The Dream Drills Pro tools are made with micrograin carbide for core strength and longer tool life. They also feature the company’s wave-shaped cutting edge to reduce cutting forces, and a wide-flute design optimized for faster, reliable chip evacuation. A self-centering 140-degree point angle reduces torque and extends tool life.
YG-1’s silicon-based, nano-layered Z-Coating technology gives cutting edges high hardness and heat resistance to improve tool life, while producing good surface finishes and a high number of parts per tool. The tools come in drilling depths of 3×D to 5×D.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
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.
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.
