The APX drill from Allied Machine & Engineering 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. Drill diameters range from 1.299” – 4.000” (33mm – 101.6mm) and the holders are available in 3xD, 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.
