Press release date: October 25, 2012
Fair Lawn, N.J. – October 1, 2012 sees the launch of the CoroDrill 460–XM. The new drill is a multi-application, high-performance drill that can be used across a wide range of materials. This drill provides high capacity utilization, flexibility and versatility. With one drill for all materials, stock holding can be reduced and greater machine flexibility is offered leading to reduced set-up time.
The CoroDrill 460-XM is made from micro-grained carbide for an excellent combination of hardness and toughness, resulting in high wear resistance and longer tool life. The coating has a special finishing treatment to reduce coefficient of friction. The strong web design provides excellent cross-sectional strength that, combined with increased flute volume, enhances chip evacuation. The point angle of 140º is ideally suited for multi-application drilling, with good centering capabilities and low thrust force design.
The drill comes in a standard diameter range of 3–20 mm (0.118–0.787 inch) in drill lengths; 2–5 × drill diameter (DIN 6537 K and DIN 6537 L). Achievable hole tolerance: IT8–IT9 and is available with internal and external coolant.
