Allied Machine to Exhibit 4TEX Drill

Allied Machine & Engineering will showcase its new 4TEX indexable carbide insert drilling system at EASTEC.

"Engineered to create optimal chip formation for efficient evacuation in holemaking processes, the drill outperforms other standard drills by delivering higher penetration rates in light duty machines. 4TEX excels in challenging applications that include interrupted cuts or drilling high temperature alloys and stainless steels," said a company spokesperson. The indexable insert drill is designed for making shallow 2xD, 3xD, and 4xD holes in the 0.472" - 1.850" range.

The 4TEX drill design is engineered to increase core strength, improving hole size and straightness. According to the company the flute space of the internal cutting edge side, where chips often cluster, is 1.6x larger than typical IC drills. Dual twisted coolant outlets improve penetration rates by enhancing coolant flow and generating chip evacuation.

The insert geometries are optimized for wear resistance and are available in geometry/coating combinations for all ISO materials including steel, stainless steel, high temperature alloys, non-ferrous and iron. The distinctive insert shape is designed to improve surface finish, hole quality and penetration rates, while eliminating issues from chips winding around the tool. The drills are stocked in both imperial and metric shanks with standard fractional diameters, as well as every 1/2 mm diameter up to 26 mm and every 1 mm up to 47 mm, allowing fast delivery.
