DMP drill head are expanded in diameters from 10.3 mm through 19.8 mm

Tungaloy is expanding its AH9130 drill head grade series to include the DMP drill head line of the DrillMeister head-changeable drill series. 

DrillMeister features a unique self-locking interface that interlocks between the drill head and tool body, enabling a simple and quick tool exchange. Operators can replace the tool without having to remove the drill body from the adapter or re-measure tool offset values, thus saving a great amount of tool setup time. 

This AH9130 grade expansion encompasses the DMP line of general-purpose drilling, succeeding the popular DMC drill head for precision drilling. Developed for drilling applications, AH9130 is a nano-multilayer PVD coating consisting of three distinctive layers. This coating configuration adds multifunctional characteristics to the grade, including wear, fracture, and oxidation resistances, as well as eliminating build-up edge and delamination, providing all characteristics required for the grade to enable long and predictable tool life in drilling operations.
