Solid Carbide Single Flute Gundrills

Small diameter solid carbide pilot tools

Star SU offers Solid Carbide Gundrills designed for machining challenging medical grade materials.

"Star Single Flute Solid Carbide Gundrills are specially engineered and manufactured to meet part print requirements for medical devices and instruments with proven results in drilling the complete range of titanium and stainless steel materials," said a company spokesperson.

"In many cases, our small diameter gundrills have resulted in providing our customers with excellent cost savings. This was driven from tool life and throughput improvements, including several case studies that were done that resulted in doubling production capability," said Jamie Dunneback, Star SU Round Tool Sales Manager. "In a titanium (6Al-4V) case study, tool life improved from 700 to 1,700 parts, while in a 440 stainless case study tool life improved from 110 to 220 parts."

"Optimization of the Single Flute Solid Carbide Gundrill manufacturing process has been a key factor," added Dunneback. We have looked at everything in the process, from selecting the appropriate grade of carbide, surface finish, edge prep and coating. All of which are essential for success in the medical sector."
