Guided Drill Addresses Large Component Challenges
Allied Machine & Engineering announces the guided T-A drill for moldmaking applications.
Allied Machine & Engineering announces the guided T-A drill for moldmaking applications. The drill addresses two major large component challenges of tool failure in deep cross-holes and unsuccessful chip evacuation. The drill minimizes the clearance between the holder and blade and maintains increased stability in deeper holes. It incorporates guided wear pads for straightness and stability and two adjustable Torx Pkus screw pins for TIR reduction through a simple diameter adjustment. These details enable the guided T-A to drill up to an 84” depth of cut, while producing balanced cutting forces and small chips for optimal evacuation.
