Heule unveils combination tool

Heule Tool Corp.’s VEX-P tool combines a replaceable, solid-carbide, high-performance drill tip and the company’s SNAP chamfering system to enable drilling and front and back chamfering in one operation. The cutting geometry creates short chips when machining steel, aluminum and other long-chipping materials and has a helix gullet for chip evacuation. The TiAlN-coated drill tip is self-centering. The tool is available from 11.0mm to 17.0mm (0.433" to 0.669") in diameter.
