Deep-Hole Drill minimizes need for pecking cycles.
February 22, 2012 -
Characterized by parabolic flute profile, Walter Titex UFLŪ A1549TFP employs helix angle of 40°, optimizing rigidity. In many applications, drilling to depth of 10-12 x D without pecking is possible. Drill's HSS-E 5% cobalt content substrate provides heat resistance, while TiAIN tip coating boosts cutting parameters and tool life, and U form point geometry promotes chip formation. Available in 1-12 mm diameters, drill is suitable for all ISO material groups.

Walter USA, LLC Introduces New Deep-Hole Drill
Walter USA, LLC introduces new deep-hole drill that outperforms conventional models
The Walter Titex UFLŪ sports a profile that promotes high rigidity and reliability and reduces or eliminates the need for pecking cycles.
Waukesha, WI - Walter USA, LLC announces the new Walter Titex UFLŪ HSS-E grade high-speed drill that significantly outperforms conventional drills, especially when drilling deep holes.
The Walter Titex UFLŪ (A1549TFP) is characterized by a parabolic flute profile with a 50% larger web and greater chip space than conventional twist drills, and employs a helix angle of 40° - the standard helix angle being 30°. This design provides high rigidity and outstanding process reliability thanks to excellent chip formation and chip evacuation. Further it reduces or eliminates the need for pecking cycles even at maximum drilling depths. In many applications, drilling to a depth of 10-12xD without pecking is possible. In comparison, standard twist drills have to withdraw much earlier in order to allow for chip removal.
The new drill's HSS-E (5% cobalt content) substrate provides high heat resistance and its TiAIN tip coating boosts cutting parameters and tool life, while its special U form point geometry promotes reliable chip formation and low cutting forces.
The new Titex UFLŪ is suitable for all ISO material groups. The new drill's available diameter range is from 1 to 12 mm.
