Dormer Pramet Force X, Force MClick image to enlarge

Dormer Pramet has extended its Solid Carbide “Force X” program with a specific range for stainless steel applications called “Force M.”

The M assortment is optimized for drilling Stainless Steel (or ISO-M) materials and is geared toward high production, general engineering and sub-contract environments.

The Force M “material specific” drilling family introduction follows the recent launch of the Force X drilling family which is designed for use in a wide range of materials.

All of the Solid carbide “Force” drills in the program feature a modified four-facet split point geometry, to enhance self-centring capabilities and improve hole quality. This design also improves chip formation, tool strength and wear resistance specifically in these tough ISO-M materials.

A unique feature of all “Force” family drills is their Continuously Thinned Web (CTW) technology flute construction. This offers a very strong web design, while at the same time reducing thrust forces during drilling. Combined with the drills’ consistent edge preparation, which provides predictable wear, CTW supports a highly consistent and reliable drilling process.

Each drill in the Force range is manufactured from premium micro-grain carbide along with a multi-layered Titanium Aluminum Nitride (TiAlN) tool coating to provide an excellent combination of hardness and toughness, resulting in high wear resistance, longer tool life and higher productivity.

A strong corner design increases stability and reduces the forces encountered during drilling and especially during breakthrough at the exit surface, in both general drilling and cross-hole applications.

Supporting drilling depths of 3xD solid construction (R458) or coolant through (R467), and 5xD solid construction (R454) or coolant through (R463) the Force M drills feature internal coolant delivery in all sizes from 3mm to 16mm and 1/8 to 5/8 inch.
