WIDIA Introduces New VariDrill



From its advanced VDS point geometry designed to reduce chipping on the cutting edge to its precision shank engineered for low runout, the WIDIA VariDrill is a new multi-application drill. It is engineered to deliver acceptable hole finish and extended tool life across a range of materials, including in steels, stainless steels, cast irons, non-ferrous materials and high-temperature alloys.

VariDrill features an advanced point geometry and "marginless" design that can reduce chipping on the tool's edge and can stabilize cutting forces. The VariDrill point and flute design is intended to enable chips to roll smoothly and evacuate easily, resulting in noticeably less friction, heat, jamming and scratching. Minimizing these drilling issues means users can expect an optimum surface finish with every hole across a wide range of work materials without fear of catastrophic failure due to chip jamming, the company said.

WIDIA's VariDrill portfolio features 3XD, 5XD and 8XD lengths, as well as coolant-through and solid options. The drills can be reconditioned, further extending tool life and adding tool value for general engineering users.

"The new VariDrill is a game changer in terms of drilling across multiple workpiece materials," Chris Merlin, Sr. Global Product Manager for WIDIA Holemaking Products, said. "With its huge range of standard line item configurations for easy ordering, and its unique design, it will become the go-to drill for shops facing quick-changing holemaking requirements."
