Ceratizit USA Inc. features the WTX High-Feed Drill, what the company says is the first of its kind on the market. The drill offers customers four effective cutting edges for increased precision, productivity and service life.

The innovative pyramid geometry of the WTX ensures aggressive and precise drilling performance, achieving positioning accuracy of 0.03 mm and excellent centering properties. Higher levels of drilling quality, hole tolerance, surface finish and positioning accuracy increase component quality, reducing potential reworking, and low burr formation when entering and exiting the hole eliminates the need for time-consuming subsequent deburring.

According to Ceratizit, the drill’s four-flute design enables high feeds in steel processing, as well as secure and quick chip removal. The distribution of cutting force to four cutting edges results in longer service life. In addition, four continuous spiral-through coolant holes provide optimum cooling of each cutting edge and contribute to a higher tool service life and a noticeable reduction in tool costs.

Further, the application of a new Ceratizit Dragonskin DPX14S coating on the WTX provides maximum protection for the drill and further increases tool life, cutting speeds,and process reliability. Dragonskin utilizes TiAIN nanolayer coating with a 0.35 coefficient of friction and allows for maximum application temperatures of 1,832º F.
