Sumitomo WDX Large Diameter Drill Series Now Includes WDX-L Coolant Through Models
Mount Prospect, IL – Sumitomo Electric Carbide, Inc.’s industry-acclaimed WDX Series large diameter drill line now includes WDX-L coolant through models.
Reducing the cost per part, the WDX-L Indexable Drill features side port coolant. Because not all spindles are coolant-thru, the WDX-L allows for the use of coolant through the side port. WDX-L diameters range from 0.5625” – 2.5000” in 4XD drill body lengths. The WDX-L uses the same inserts as Sumitomo’s conventional WDX Series (WDXT inserts).
Diameters of the conventional WDX range from 0.5625” – 2.625” in 2XD, 3XD and 4XD drill body lengths. The WDX Series is available in inch and metric sizes.
Sumitomo’s vast selection of WDX and WDX-L bodies deliver a proven design for stable drilling. All drill bodies come with a four-cornered indexable insert design to provide a cost effective drilling solution and easy tool management. The series uses two inserts per drill, regardless of diameter size. Insert grades for a longer tool life include ACP300 for steel, ACK300 for cast iron and DL1500 for aluminum.
For a limited time, the WDX and WDX-L are available at special IMTS promotional savings. Through December, Sumitomo is offering kit pricing (including the drill body, 10 inserts, and a $10 gift card) and buy two drills get one drill free.
