Join Cutting Tool Engineering for a one-hour webinar based on this month’s cover story, “A Fluid Choice.” The article examines the options for high-pressure coolant when deep-hole drilling.

Online Tool Configurator

Whether drilling, milling or grinding, application-optimized semi-standard and special tools from Inovatools make many machining operations much more productive and efficient than with conventional tools. Tools that exceed standard requirements always constitute a particular challenge. But thanks to the new digital tool configurator service, Inovatools now offers an online application that allows users to quickly and easily identify semi-standard tools from the catalog program on the basis of predefined Inovatools standards and conveniently configure customized special tools based on their individual needs, materials and processes.

The first four-flute drill on the market!

The CERATIZIT WTX-HFDS solid carbide drill with Dragonskin coating achieves new levels of quality, hole tolerance, and positioning accuracy, with low burr formation while entering and exiting the hole. The core stability of the drill is retained with optimum cooling via four internal spiral coolant holes making the drilling process safe and effective. The pyramid geometry of the WTX-HFDS allows for higher speed rates and precise drilling performance and the cutting force is distributed to all four cutting edges, providing longer tool life and overall cost savings.

Deep hole drilling strategy

Sandvik Coromant offers a deep hole drilling strategy using its CoroDrill 861-GP and 861-GM drills in this brief video supplement to "A Happy Medium," a feature article in the October 2021 issue of Cutting Tool Engineering that delves into effectively drilling austempered ductile iron.
