ITC Has The Top Drilling Solution For Stainless

The new Widia line of drilling products is redefining the hole making process when it comes to machining stainless steel and duplex. The new Widia Top Drill-S is now available in the UK from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) for manufacturers striving for improved productivity, performance and tool life longevity.

Introducing the new Top Drill-S (TDS) series, ITC now gives end users pinpoint precision centring ability and an increased wear resistance and tool life when conducting heat-generating machining applications on tough materials. The inventive new geometry and gash design improves chip evacuation and delivers a smooth chip transition from the cutting edge to the flutes. This reduces cutting forces and the subsequent high temperatures, something that is complemented by the new WM15PD high-aluminium coating and polished flutes. The multi-layered AlTiN based coating gives the TDS a high hardness level at high temperatures; a feature that supports high-speed drilling and MQL applications.

The through coolant TDS drill has a point that consists of a patented design that reduces cutting forces whilst demonstrating uncompromising centring accuracy. This precision is supported by a 2-margin land that retains cutting stability and reduces friction whilst the large chip-flute cross section and small core diameter supports the fast removal of chips, especially when drilling deep holes in challenging materials.
The TDS range is available with a 3XD, 5XD and 8XD length with diameters from 3 to 20mm in 0.1mm increments. The 140 degree point angle drills are supplied with an overall length from 62 to 234mm diameter and a flute length from 20mm to 181mm, depending upon the designation selected by the end user.
