Polycrystalline Diamond Insert for T-A Drill

Allied Machine & Engineering, a manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems, highlights the availability of its Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) T-A Drill inserts, designed for drilling in carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP), used in lightweight aircraft wings and fuselages, and other highly abrasive substances. The PCD inserts deliver improved tool life and value.

The T-A Drill series features a replaceable tip design, allowing users to replace only the tip of the tool when it has worn out, unlike other products that require the entire tool to be removed and replaced. This reduces the cost of replacement tools.

Allied Machine's PCD T-A Drill inserts feature the standard T-A Drill insert with PCD wafers installed at the insert's cutting edge. Developed to meet the needs of a major American aircraft manufacturer when the company began using CFRP for wings and fuselages nearly a decade ago, the PCD T-A inserts were designed for reliability and cutting efficiency.

"The highly productive, cost-effective PCD inserts can withstand strong and highly abrasive materials like CFRP titanium stacks, aluminum, titanium, copper, magnesium, fiberglass and chipboard, which are frequently used in the aerospace and automotive industries," said a company spokesperson.
