Innovative drilling head geometry
- Published: August 28, 2017
Iscar's new HCP-IQ SumoCham drlling heads feature a new drilling head geometry that features concave cutting edge which the company says enhances the self-centering capability of the drill.
The new HCP-IQ drilling heads enable using up to 12x D long drills without the need for a pilot hole operation.
The drilling heads are available in 6 to 32.9 mm diameters, in 0.1 mm increments. By eliminating the need for a pilot hole, the new drilling heads shorten machining cycle time and the number of tools required for the drilling operation. This can provide a substantial cost reduction, says the company.
