YG-1 Tool Co. has beefed up its successful Dream Drills line-up with the announcement of its new Dream Drills Pro line optimized for machining in steel and cast iron.
The main advantage of this line, according to the company, is high cutting speeds with longer tool life. Several advances were combined to make these tools faster, more efficient and longer lasting than other comparable tools tested.
Dream Drills Pro tools are made with micrograin carbide for exceptional core strength and longer tool life. They also feature YG-1’s wave-shaped cutting edge to reduce cutting forces, and an advanced, wide-flute design optimized for faster, reliable chip evacuation. A self-centering 140° point angle reduces torque and extends tool life.
YG-1’s Z-Coating (silicon-based, nano-layered) technology gives cutting edges high hardness and greater heat resistance, as well as superior surface finishes and more parts per tool.
Dream Drills Pro tools come in drilling depths of 3xD to 5xD, in sizes from diamet of 1 inch to diameter of 20 inches.
Dream Drills Pro is the latest line in the Dream Drills product matrix from YG-1, including General Purpose, MQL, High Feed, Flat Bottom, High Hardened and Inox. Each is said to align with customers’ various machining demands and applications.
Prototyping helps evaluate and test a design, clarify production costs, sell a product and secure patents.
Moldmakers need to be aware of how different gating technology can affect their customers when designing a hot runner system into a mold.
While both hot runner and cold runner systems have their benefits, for design flexibility as well as reduced cycle times and costs, hot runner systems will probably be the better choice.
