Allied Machine to Exhibit Robust Cutting Tools for Oil and Gas Industry at HOUSTEX 2019
Houston, TX - At HOUSTEX 2019, Allied Machine & Engineering presents three holemaking & finishing solutions for manufacturers of oil and gas field components in booth #2034. Machining parts for this rugged industry offers significant challenges such as variation in chip formation, long cross holes, interrupted cuts and muscling through high strength carbon steel. To meet these demands, Allied showcases the 4TEX® indexable insert drill and the NOVITECH™ modular vibration dampening system, both of which launched in September. In addition, Allied Machine highlights the tenacious APX™ drill, engineered to excel in machining deep hole / large diameter applications.
The 4TEX drill is engineered to deliver optimal chip formation and provide higher penetration rates than standard twist drills for light duty machines. This indexable insert drill excels in applications with interrupted cuts or drilling on angles surfaces. 4TEX is also ideal for making shallow 2xD, 3xD, and 4xD holes in the 12mm - 47mm (0.472" - 1.850") range.
The design provides increased core strength, improving hole size and straightness. Dual twisted coolant outlets improve penetration rates by enhancing coolant flow and generating superior chip formation and evacuation. In fact, the flute space of the internal cutting edge (where chips collect and pack together most) is 1.6 times larger than typical indexable carbide drills.
4TEX inserts are four-sided to maximize the tool life of each insert. Available geometries have been developed for steel, stainless steel, high-temperature alloys, non-ferrous, and iron, which are optimized for excellent chip formation and wear resistance in difficult applications.
Allied Machine also shares the Wohlhaupter NOVITECH vibration dampening intermediate module at HOUSTEX. Mounted inside the patent-pending NOVITECH system, the viscoelastically mounted damper modules minimize vibrations during the machining of diameters ranging from 1.970” – 8.070” (50mm – 205mm), in longer overhangs up to 10xD. The NOVITECH increases boring operations productivity, surface quality, and process reliability while extending both the insert and machine center’s spindle life by reducing chatter. The NOVITECH is compatible with any machine spindle and features Wohlhaupter’s MultiBore system (MVS), making it simple to use with existing Wohlhaupter components.
The APX drill is the final holemaking solution in Allied Machine’s featured lineup for HOUSTEX. The APX delivers the strength and versatility needed in machining oil and gas field equipment. This heavy-duty drill allows for higher spindle speeds and is designed to take advantage of the power curve on modern CNC machines for maximum penetration rates in deep hole drilling.
The APX’s exclusive geometry is designed to increase penetration rates and tool life, providing the lowest cost-per-hole among deep hole drilling lines. Shank diameters range from 1.500” – 4.000” (38mm – 101.6mm) and the holders are available in 5xD, 8xD, and 10xD. It can be used with either the GEN3SYS or T-A pilot insert to minimize drift and maintain straightness while utilizing the outboard carbide inserts to achieve tight control on the final cutting diameter.
