Solid Carbide Multi-Application Drills

The Dormer Force X drill for greater efficiency and economy

The Dormer Force X upgrades the Dormer MPX solid carbide drill family with new geometry, corner design and edge preparation. The upgrade applies to the 3xD R457 and R458 and the 5xD R453 and R454, bringing them in-line with the newly launched 8xD R459.

With Titanium Aluminum Nitride (TiAlN) coating, the Force X is ideal for a wide range of machines and materials, such as stainless steel, alloy steels, cast iron and non-ferrous materials. All Force X drills include Continuously Thinned Web (CTW) technology, a strong web design reducing thrust requirements during drilling. They also feature a unique edge preparation, protecting the cutting area and preventing premature chipping and flaking. A strong corner design across the range also increases stability and reduces the forces encountered when exiting the workpiece.

The micrograin carbide substrate, along with the TiAlN coating, offers high wear resistance and increased tool life, while the 140° split point geometry provides precise centering capabilities and low thrust forces.

Offering both solid and coolant feed options to improve cutting efficiency and chip evacuation, the new Force X range offers high productivity and improved performance.
