FABTECH Mexico - Allied Features Drills for Structural Steel
MONTERRAY, mexico (April 15, 2019) - Allied Machine & Engineering presents their newest GEN3SYS XT Pro high-penetration insert designed specifically for beam and plate production at FABTECH, May 7th – 9th, in booth #1417. In addition to this material-specific innovation, Allied highlights the Revolution drill and Structural Steel T-A drill, both of which are engineered to excel in structural steel applications.
With an exclusive combination of substrate and multilayer coating, the newest XT Pro insert is engineered to withstand heat generated while drilling in structural steel beams or plates in high production facilities. The unique composition of carbide grade, geometry and high-temp coating are designed to run at or beyond current O.E.M. rates while offering extended tool life.
A frequent issue in stacked plate applications occurs when the insert spins along with the exit disc produced from the first plate of steel. This can crush the insert and result in catastrophic tool failure. Allied’s stacked plate Revolution drill has an adjustable diameter and is designed to drill through plates with up to 0.125” gap, eliminating the problematic exit disc. The Revolution drill doesn’t require a pilot hole, reducing set-up time, and the adjustable diameter allows for reduced tooling inventory.
The Structural Steel T-A drill produces optimal results when drilling holes in I-beams and H-beams. For example, a recent customer manufacturing over 100,000 tons of steel
beams, bars, and ductwork increased their penetration rate from 1.05 IPM to 3.52 IPM using the Original T-A structural steel drill, reducing their cycle time by 70%.
