Indexable Gun Drill Line Addresses Diverse Drilling Needs
Tungaloy’s DeepTriDrill can address diverse deep drilling needs of automotive and mold set parts for maximum efficiency and stability.
Tungaloy expands its DeepTriDrill line of indexable gun drills to include new drill diameters ranging from ø12.0 mm to ø13.5 mm.
DeepTriDrill can address diverse deep drilling needs of automotive and mold set parts for maximum efficiency and stability. In addition, the drill diameter can easily be altered in increments of 0.01 mm to the required hole sizes simply by placing dedicated adjusting shims beneath the guide pads, enabling an overall reduction of cycle time and manufacturing costs in diverse deep drilling applications. A high precision H-class insert with cutting edge configuration provides hole accuracy at greater feed rates, while ensuring smooth chip evacuation. The drill reduces tool setup time with easy insert indexing, and fine adjustments are possible with dedicated adjusting shims.
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.
While EDM speeds today are impressive, there are a number of machining variables that influence the machining speed of the wire EDM.
Prototyping helps evaluate and test a design, clarify production costs, sell a product and secure patents.
