Press Release Summary:
WithÂ CTW™ (Continually Thinned Web) flute geometry that optimizes flute volume and breaks chips into small, manageable pieces, MP-X 8xD reduces machining time for operators by eliminating pecking process. Chip evacuation speed and efficacy helps reduce cost-per-hole while also increasing throughput. Promoting wear resistance and tool life, construction is of microgram carbide. Multi-layer TiAIN coatingÂ lendsÂ stability to cutting edges and provides oxidation stability.
Original Press Release:
Solid Carbide MPX Drill Reduces Cost-Per-Hole
The high performance Dormer MP-X 8xD drill provides increased productivity for operators.
Building on the reliable technology of the high performance solid carbide MP-X 3xD and 5xD drills, the new coolant through 8xD drill reduces machining time for operators by eliminating the pecking process.
With fast and efficient chip evacuation, the MP-X 8xD aligns with the comprehensive Dormer Pramet range of cutting tools by reducing the cost-per-hole and increasing overall throughput for users.
The microgram carbide material provides an excellent combination of hardness and toughness, resulting in high wear resistance and longer tool life. With multi-layer Titanium Aluminum Nitride (TiAIN-Top) coating, the Dormer MP-X drill delivers:
Improved stability to the cutting edges
Outstanding wear protection
High hardness / toughness and oxidation stability
The CTW™ (Continually Thinned Web) flute geometry optimizes flute volume and breaks the chips into small, manageable pieces to ensure efficient chip evacuation in deep hold applications, reducing machine downtime.
CTW™ ensures consistent forces throughout the drilling cycle. The combination of the split four facet point and the CTW™ flute delivers precise centering and low thrust forces.
The MP-X 8xD is a worthy addition to the comprehensive Dormer Pramet cutting tool portfolio.
