Walter introduces new solid carbide universal drill Click image to enlarge

Walter Tools has released the DC160 X∙treme Evo Advance solid carbide universal drill.

The DC160 is the latest addition to Walter’s X∙treme Evo product line and features a new thinner web at the point, and advanced positioning at the margins for rapid guidance in the hole.

Walter says the DC160 can be used in a wide range of applications and with a broad array of different materials.

The DC160 achieves better point geometry by using a deeper and larger chip gash at the point, requiring less torque and feed force, improving tool life. This also moves the second margin forward, allowing it to engage sooner and improves true position of the hole and boosts hole quality.

The DC160 is a four-margin drill which provides improved stability in uneven entrance and exits, as well as cross holes or interruptions. It has an improved TiSiAlCrN/AlTiN multi-layer coating and is available in 3, 5, 8 and 12 × Dc. The drill can be used with or without internal coolant depending on size.

The whole range covers diameters: 3–20 mm (0.1-0.78 in.) for 3,8 and 12 × Dc along with 3–25 mm (0.1-0.98 in.) for 5 × Dc (all diameters 3.1-19-mm (1/8-3/4-in.) nominal range).

The DC160 can be used with all ISO material groups and in a variety of applications, such as inclined entries and exits, drilling holes close to the edge of the workpiece, or convex and concave surfaces. it can also be used with all of the major machine tool types, including both horizontal and vertical machining centres and in lathes. The new drill can be used with or without internal coolant.

More uniform grip with jaw forming ring grips

The Dillon jaw forming ring is an easy-to-use tool that provides a more uniform grip on the workpiece, according to the company.
