Walter Offers New Titex XD70April 1, 2012
Walter USA, LLC has introduced the Walter Titex XD70, a solid carbide drill that is designed to employ design and manufacturing innovations that bring new levels of productivity to the drilling of extremely deep holes, the company said.
The Walter Titex XD70 (the XD designation stands for extremely deep) can produce holes up to 70xD in one operation and does not require pecking. Previous XD technology product offerings topped out at 30xD, the company said.
Walter is using a new method of producing solid carbide blanks, making it possible to efficiently manufacture this type of long solid carbide drill. In addition, a special grinding process is also employed.
As is the case with all XD drills, cooling for the XD70 is provided via internal coolant channels. However, despite the great drilling depth, no special coolant equipment, such as an external high-pressure system, is required. A standard cooling unit, such as those available with any machining center, is sufficient, the company said.
The XD70 technology is currently being offered as a special tool, in diameters ranging from 5 to 12 mm. Two tip coatings are available depending on the workpiece material, TTP for steels and XPL for cast iron.
