Tungaloy America Inc. has added 35xD, 40xD and 45xD drilling depth capabilities to its DeepTri-Drill indexable insert deep hole drills.
DeepTri-Drill is designed to provide productivity and application security for drilling deep holes on standard machining centers and CNC boring machines, while ensuring easy tool management by eliminating the need for regrinding. The insert features chip splitters that enable effective chip evacuations for high feed rates during deep hole drilling in various materials. Inspired by BTA deep hole drilling technology, innovative insert geometry and optimal guide pad allocations on the drill body allow the production of high-quality deep holes equivalent to those made with traditional brazed gundrills.
In addition to the current lineup ranging up to 25xD, DeepTri-Drill now offers 35xD, 40xD and 45xD drill depths, further expanding its deep hole drilling potential similar to those found in injection mold and large-sized component manufacturing.
Understanding the effects of injection on the core, slide and associated components is critical to selecting the best side-action methods for a given application. This first of two articles will discuss the basic physics underlying all side-actions.
While EDM speeds today are impressive, there are a number of machining variables that influence the machining speed of the wire EDM.
Moldmakers need to be aware of how different gating technology can affect their customers when designing a hot runner system into a mold.
