New WIDIA VariDrill(TM) a High-Tech Solution for Multi-Purpose Drilling
Press release date: October 5, 2011
(LATROBE, PA) - From its advanced VDS point geometry designed to reduce chipping on the cutting edge to its precision shank engineered for low runout, the WIDIA VariDrill(TM) is a new multi-application drill engineered to deliver acceptable hole finish and extended tool life across a wide range of materials, including in steels, stainless steels, cast irons, non-ferrous materials, and high-temperature alloys.
VariDrill features an advanced point geometry and "marginless" design that reduces chipping on the tool's edge and stabilizes cutting forces. The VariDrill point and flute design enables chips to roll smoothly and evacuate easily, resulting in noticeably less friction, heat, jamming, and scratching. Minimizing these drilling issues means users can expect an optimum surface finish with every hole across a wide range of work materials without fear of catastrophic failure due to chip jamming
WIDIA VariDrill also offers the broadest portfolio of standard drill configurations available on the market. The VariDrill portfolio features 3XD, 5XD, and 8XD lengths, as well as coolant-through and solid options. The drills can be reconditioned, further extending tool life and adding tool value for general engineering users.
When asked what makes the new VariDrill such a revolutionary development for customers, Chris Merlin, Sr. Global Product Manager for Widia Holemaking products commented, "The new VariDrill is a game-changer in terms of drilling across multiple workpiece materials. With its huge range of standard line item configurations for easy ordering, and its unique design, it will become the go-to drill for shops facing quick-changing holemaking requirements"
