Solid Carbide Drill is designed for holemaking in aluminum.
End Mills

Solid Carbide Drill is designed for holemaking in aluminum.

Along with 135° drill point, HPS solid-carbide drill features Beyond™ KN15™ carbide grade with polished surface that reduces friction on flutes, margins, and cutting edges. This promotes chip evacuation, even in minimum-quantity lubrication (MQL) processes. While sharp cutting edges lower cutting forces and extend tool life, spiral flute design accelerates chip evacuation. Diameters range...
