TaeguTec recently expanded on its highly successful head changeable DrillRush line with a 12xD drill that produces deep holes accurately, repeatedly and economically.
The DrillRush 12xD drill range for deeper hole drilling and the body’s polished flutes offers smooth chip evacuation without damaging the surface finish.
The strong delivery of coolant through its twisted body channels enables a widened gullet design and keeps the drill and workpiece material cool at all times while minimizing cycle times when drilling diameters from 12 mm to 22.9 mm.
The DrillRush 12xD’s offers accurate performance due to the good run-out made possible due to tight manufacturing tolerances.
Other important factors that are now resolved with the introduction and expansion of TaeguTec’s DrillRush 12xD body are repeatability, smooth surface finish and the high productivity for deep hole drilling applications which is now achieved without the need for pecking cycles.
To promote machining convenience in hole making applications, the new 12xD body can be accentuated with TaeguTec’s recently released chamfering rings which drill and chamfer in a single operation in order to minimize cycle times as well as inventory and tooling cost for improved cost effectiveness.
To add value by enabling stable machining and longer tool life, TaeguTec chamfering rings use two TT9080 specially treated, multi-layered, physical vapour deposition coated CRNG inserts on either side which can machine any type of alloy.
TaeguTec also supplies special plugs with an internal thread for coolant connections used on lathes that can be pressed into the cavity on the back end of the shank.
