Walter's P6006 insert was designed to drill low carbon and low alloy steelsClick image to enlargeWalter’s P6006 insert for exchangeable-tip drills brings new levels of drilling efficiency to low carbon steels, structural steels, and low alloy steels.

Developed for unalloyed low-carbon and low-alloy steels, it features optimized geometry, with a sharp cutting edge and deep chip gash that leads to maximum process reliability and efficient chip breakage in low alloy or unalloyed steels.

It also offers high centering accuracy, ideal for deep hole drills in the above-mentioned materials.

The P6006 insert can perform up to 10 x Dc without a pilot drill. It features a protective chamfer on the insert with HIPIMS-PVD coating, and the wear resistant WPP25 grade which leads to maximum tool life in stable conditions. Further, the insert has a 100° prism for the contact point in the body, and a 140° point angle with new geometry and thinner web. Optimum wear detection is provided by its light-colored yellow coating. The P6006's current dia. range is 0.472-1.161-in. (12.00–29.50 mm), with plans to increase the diameter range with Walter's next product release. This exchangeable-tip drill finds ready application in general metalworking, and the energy, automotive, and aerospace industries.
