Combining a multi-purpose geometry with advanced coating technology, the solid carbide Universal Drill from Seco Tools subsidiary Niagara Cutter is designed to provide reliable, predictable tool life and low cost per hole, especially in high-volume production environments.

According to the company, the drill’s rigid four-facet point geometry offers high centering capability, maintains an IT8/9 hole tolerance and is easy to regrind. A polished AlCrN (aluminum chromium nitride) coating gives the drill high abrasion resistance, toughness and increased chip evacuation capabilities.

Well-suited for hole-making applications in a variety of workpiece materials, including steels, stainless steels and cast irons, the drills are available in diameter sizes ranging from 3 to 20 mm, in increments of 0.1 mm. For efficient chip evacuation, the 5×D- and 3×D-length drills with cylindrical shanks offer the option of through-tool coolant capability. All Universal Drills are compatible with Seco shrink-fit holders, hydraulic chucks and high-precision collet chucks.
