YG-1 Tool Co. announces 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.
The drill line 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.

While EDM speeds today are impressive, there are a number of machining variables that influence the machining speed of the wire EDM.
To achieve the ultimate capability and level of productivity from your wire EDM on a consistent, repeatable and reliable basis, regular maintenance is a required task.
