With its PWP and PWP-D insertable form drill system, Schwanog addresses the problem of high setup times as the insert holder stays in the machine during insert changeover. This design allows the center height to stay unchanged.
The insertable carbide tool is ground individually, according to customer specifications and can hold a minimum tolerance of ±0.02 mm and repeatability is 0.02mm.
The form drill systems are available in various carbide grades.
As the insertable PWP and PWP-D form drill systems are limited to a maximum bore diameter of 28mm and a depth of 16mm, Schwanog added solid-carbide drills to complement its line of form drill products for larger bore sizes and deeper holes. The solid-carbide drills are ground individually, according to customer specifications and can hold a minimum tolerance of ±0.02 mm as well.
