OSG WDO-SUS drillClick image to enlargeOSG has introduced its ExoCarb WDO-SUS drills for machining stainless steel and titanium alloys. The company says the new drills combat the problems associated with machining these alloys: work hardening, elongated chips, low thermal conductivity, and welding on the tool.

 The drills feature newly designed Mega Cooler coolant holes that improve coolant flow for better chip evacuation and reduced heat generation, claims OSG. 

The patent pending flute geometry and sharp cutting edge produce compact cutting chips that prevent chip packing.

Also, the WDO-SUS drill provides stable regrinding and prevents work hardening in additional manufacturing processes by reducing margin wear with its unique margin shape and OSG’s patented WXL coating.

With these features, the WDO-SUS drill has demonstrated double the tool life of the competitor’s tool by surpassing 3,100 linear inches even when drilling difficult-to-machine duplex stainless steel, says OSG.
