Sandvik Coromant Releases CoroDrill Delta-C R846 for HRSA Machining
Fair Lawn, New Jersey, January 29, 2008 - Sandvik Coromant has announced the release of the CoroDrill Delta-C R846, a solid carbide drill specifically designed to maximize performance in aerospace and industrial gas turbine applications. The new tool provides increased accuracy, extended tool life and improved productivity in HRSA machining.
The CoroDrill Delta-C R846 features a new positive-tip geometry that maintains a more consistent curve along the cutting edge. This distributes cutting forces throughout the body, enabling longer tool life and resulting in minimum deflection and burr formation. The tool also possesses added strength on the outer diameter corners, where cutting forces are strongest in demanding applications.
A deeper flute design on this new Delta-C's body optimizes chip removal, ensuring quick evacuation from the cutting zone. By operating free from obstruction, the tool retains the closest possible tolerance and produces high surface finishes. The accuracy and quality capabilities of the tool make it ideal for aerospace engine and gas turbine applications, where high tolerances are a requirement.
To counter tool wear, the Delta-C R846 uses an innovative bronze PVD coating. The coating's layered structure protects the substrate and offers increased toughness and wear resistance. This is especially valuable in demanding materials such as Inconel and other Ni-based alloys.
The CoroDrill Delta-C R846 is available in diameters ranging from 3 mm to 12 mm and handles maximum hole depths of up to five times the tool's diameter.
