Drill Inserts Provide Greater Stability, Improved Performance
YG-1’s SV-point spade drill inserts provide longer tool life at higher spindle speeds and feeds. The drill inserts perform in a wide range of applications and materials including steel, stainless steel and cast iron. The inserts also offer H-coating for high heat and wear resistance, sinusoidal thinning edge for smooth cutting and improved centering, positive rake angle for improved hole finish, and low thrust force. Three material options include super cobalt (T15) for improved tool life and performance in size range 9.5 to 114.3 mm, premium cobalt (M48) for extended tool live over T15 in harder materials in size range 9.5 to 114.3 mm and carbide C5 (P40) for longer tool life and faster speeds and feeds in rigid setups in size range 9.5 to 47.6 mm.
A look at three options for integrating conformal cooling into a core or cavity with an emphasis on vacuum brazing.
Moldmakers who are interested in exploring conformal cooling, but are concerned about its complexity and expense need to understand two things: it is neither complex nor expensive.
A hybrid manufacturing process offers mold builders an alternative method for making cores and cavities with time and cost savings and increased consistency.
