TungSix-Drill Line Addition

"TungSix-Drill is the world's first indexable insert drill that incorporates double-sided, triangular inserts with six effective cutting edges," said a company spokesperson. "Unlike traditional double-sided inserts, which would generate unwanted, heavy cutting load during drilling, the TungSix-Drill insert is designed with an optimized rake angle and chip breakers on both sides of the insert, which provide the same light cutting action as a single-sided, positive insert."

AH3135 is a high fracture resistant grade consisting of a tough carbide substrate and multiple layers of coatings designed to withstand high vibrations due to unfavorable cutting conditions, providing long tool life.

Due to the insert's increased number of cutting edges and tool life, TungSix-Drill provides the most efficient cost per insert economy in Tungaloy's hole making line.

Features include:

  • Drill diameters: o0.812" - o2.000" (o20 - 27 mm), 2xD, 3xD and 4xD
  • Double-sided inserts with six fully usable cutting edges
  • Identical inserts used for both the center and the periphery
  • High hole diameter accuracy due to the optimal insert positioning
  • Robust center cutting edge due to the most effective geometry
  • AH3135 grade for fracture resistance.
