Dormer MRO ApplicationClick image to enlargeDormer Pramet has created a special selection of cutting tools and drills aimed at the critical MRO sector. 

The program includes stub, jobber, mechanics lengths and S&D reduced shank drills. To cover the breadth of applications within the MRO segment, there are drills for general purpose machine and portable drilling. These include the popular HSS R10 series for right hand drilling and HSS L10 series for left hand drilling. Also included are the carbide DC series of center drills. There is a specific selection for sheet metal drilling and spot weld drilling. 

The drill program is highlighted by the MRO drills that cover most ferrous applications and are suitable for use in portable drilling, drill presses and other operations within this segment. The MRO drills are available in jobber length (301JD style), heavy duty jobber length (331HD, 332HD, 333HD styles), mechanics length with “tri-flat” shanks (321MD style), stub length (331SM, 332SM styles) and reduced shank (341SD, 342SD styles). Within this offer there are different surface treatments to cover the wide range of MRO operating conditions. As well, the program contains conventional 118-degree point geometries as well as 135-degree self-centering split points for more challenging applications. Sets within each style are available in a rust resistant, water and shatter proof case.

The MRO segment offer extends into drills, taps, combination drill & tap tools, dies, reamers, countersinks, counterbores, end mills, carbide rotary burrs, drilling & tapping fluids and accessories.

Horrendous Holes

by Kip Hanson

Cutting super alloys can be a formidable machining challenge

Nickel and cobalt-based superalloys may not be Kryptonite, but drilling holes in Hastelloy X, Inconel 625, Waspaloy and Haynes 25 is about as tough as it gets in the world of metal removal. With machinability ratings in the low teens, these nightmare materials test the patience of even the most cool-headed machinist.
