New Solid Carbide Drill from Walter Provides Productive Holemaking up to 30 x Dc
Design innovations enable the new DC160 Advance to deliver high productivity drilling in a wide variety of materials.
Waukesha, WI—Walter has introduced the versatile new X·treme Evo DC160 Advance solid carbide drill. The drill delivers exceptional productivity in a wide variety of materials and can be used universally in an extremely broad range of applications, including in the mold and die, energy, automotive, and general metalworking areas.
Apart from the new 30 x Dc L/D ratio offering, the drill's many design innovations include double margins and advanced placement of second margins that ensure better centering capabilities and the tendency of the drills to stabilize early into the cut. This gives an advantage in performing difficult applications such as cross holes and inclined entry and exits. A deep chip gash ensures reliable chip evacuation resulting in improved hole quality and reliability. And an innovative new thinner web produces superior positioning accuracy, reduced cutting forces and vibration.
Available in a variety of dimensions, now up to 30 x Dc and in diameters from 0.125-0.75 (3-25 mm), the new DC160 Advance solid carbide drill features grades WJ30ET (full coating) for universal usage up to 8 x Dc and WJ30EU (tip coating) for 12 x DC up to 30xDc. The new drills have both a cylindrical (HA) and whistle notch (HE) shanks ground to a h6 tolerance for highest reliability The point angle is 140°. This versatile new drill is suited for a variety of ISO materials including steels, stainless steels, cast irons, nonferrous materials, super alloys, hard materials and other nonmetal materials (ISO material groups P, M, K, N, S, H and O).
