Drilling for success in South African industries.
South Africa’s established and diversified manufacturing sector has grown to become a viable player with strong potential to compete in the global economy. Manufacturing is dominated by several key industries, out of which, TaeguTec has supplied the most advanced state-of-the-art cutting tools and tooling services to South African industries such as automotive, mould and die, metals and electronics. Due to the rainbow nation’s diversified industries TaeguTec offers a myriad of tools capable of cutting costs and increasing productivity on any material.
One of the most important areas of manufacturing is holemaking and TaeguTec offers several options for companies looking to perform efficient drilling operations no matter if the factory relies upon the speed of production, the amount of savings shops are targeting, the materials being drilled or a combination of all these factors.
One of the industry’s favourite choices when it comes to drilling into everything from alloy steel to stainless steel is TaeguTec’s DrillRush – 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 its reinforced edges and coating, which 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 outstanding performance.
Available as a standard drill in 3xD and 5xD for a diameter range of 26mm to 41mm, the SpadeRush’s unique clamping technology enables operators to quickly change drill heads without removing the clamping screw from the holder.
For cost effective machining and higher productivity, the TopDrill line has been built to satisfy a growing market demand for flexibility and excellent performance. Also, its true 4-corner inserts are suitable for both internal and external pockets, 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.
Last but not least is the newest member of TaeguTec’s drilling family, the TwinRush – a product that guarantees excellent performance and high productivity on large diameter holes.
The noticeable feature of the TwinRush joins together a centring 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 double effective design increases productivity.
Whatever the case may be, TaeguTec in South Africa offers a total drilling solution that is catered to machine shops’ specific needs in order to gain that competitive edge.
