Holemaking and drilling options from TaeguTec

One of the industry’s favorite choices when it comes to drilling into everything from alloy steel to stainless steel is DrillRush says TaeguTec – a versatile indexable drill that is constantly being expanded to provide dependable, optimal hole drilling performances on any material.

The various DrillRush geometries and sizes such as 1.5xD, 3xD, 5xD, 8xD and 12xD not only increase productivity but improve on tool life due to their reinforced edges and coating that are suitably designed for optimal chip control and hole quality on any material.

TaeguTec recently introduced two new sizes; the 12xD drill that produces deep holes accurately, repeatedly and economically, and the DrillRush 6mm to 6.9mm diameter range drill heads, which were designed to handle 1.5xD, 3xD and 5xD drilling depths.



All DrillRush products eliminate the need to remove the entire drill from the spindle in order to replace the head, a process that shortens cycle times and substantially increases productivity.

For producing cost effective large diameter holes, TaeguTec’s SpadeRush, a recently introduced line of high productivity head changeable drills for large diameter hole making that stays within the cycle times necessary to be competitive due to its optimised cutting edge and unique rigid clamping system, generates higher productivity and performance.

Available as a standard drill in 3xD and 5xD for a diameter range of 26mm to 41mm, the SpadeRush’s clamping technology enables operators to quickly change drill heads without removing the clamping screw from the holder.



For cost effective machining and productivity the TopDrill line has been built to satisfy a growing market demand for flexibility and performance. Additionally its true 4-corner inserts are suitable for both internal and external pockets, which reduces inventory and promotes cost reduction.

From top to bottom, the TopDrill has been built for improved tool life and is equipped with a new insert grade for enhanced durability.

The newest member of TaeguTec’s drilling family is the TwinRush – a product that guarantees excellent performance and productivity on large diameter holes. The main feature of the TwinRush is that it joins together a centreing insert with a pair of precise square inserts on either side in order to combine two different drill types onto one drill body, and protects them with TaeguTec’s TT9080 PVD multi-layered coated grade. By doing so, this doubly effective design increases productivity.
