Tungaloy Corporation has announced the expansion of DrillForce-Meister, a head-changeable drill series. DrillForce-Meister is a tool series for large-diameter holemaking (drill diameter 26.0 to 41.0mm) that features two effective cutting edges for high speed and high productivity.
DrillForce-Meister’s clamping system uses a unique error-proof asymmetric seat and a screw setting, which allows easy and swift head replacement by simply loosening and tightening the screw. Since a new drill head can be mounted without removing the drill body from the spindle, a full re-setting and re-indexing process is eliminated, shortening entire tool change time. By replacing the head screw regularly, the drill body can be used for an even longer period, reducing tooling cost and inventory requirements.
The drill head is supported by a wide contact area on the seat so the drill can withstand the high cutting force generated during high-feed drilling. The insert seat is designed with precision, providing excellent repeatability and minimising run-out.
The cutting edge is prepared to increase the coating adhesion of a highly reliable AH725 grade. The tool life has been prolonged by a smart combination of cutting edge geometry and grade property.
DrillForce-Meister will not only increase productivity but also reduce a total machining cost by shortening tool change time and eliminating regrinding cost.
