Tungaloy has introduced an expansion to its DrillMeister diameter range of 6.0 to 9.0 mm (.24 to .39 in.)
DrillMeister features simple and swift drill head indexing due to its unique self-clamping system. Tool replacement is easy: just replace the drill head. There is no need to remove the entire drill body from the toolholder and to re-adjust the tool overhang, thus reducing a large amount of tool-change time. A drill head can be mounted or removed with small torque and can be done in the machine as needed.
The new diameter range of 6.0-9.9 mm will be available with the TID type drill bodies of 1.5D, 3D, 5D, and 8D, assuring incredible drilling performance for small-diameter holemaking in various materials. The flange type drill body is designed for excellent chip evacuation due to the high helical flute angle and special-polished flute surface. Excellent chip evacuation can be realized even in drilling deep holes of 5xD or deeper where chip evacuation tends to be difficult.
DrillMeister not only improves efficiency in machining but also drastically reduces machining cost by minimizing tool-change time and eliminating regrinding cost.
