Indexable Carbide Insert Drill

Allied Machine & Engineering has introduced its 4TEX indexable carbide insert drilling system. 4TEX is engineered to create optimal chip formation for efficient evacuation in holemaking processes. "Allied Machine's newest IC drill is outperforming other standard drills by delivering higher penetration rates in light-duty machines as well," said a company spokesperson. "4TEX excels in drilling operations that include interrupted cuts, sloped work surfaces or angled breakouts. It also performs exceptionally well in high-temperature alloys and stainless steels." The indexable insert drill is suitable for making shallow 2xD, 3xD, and 4xD holes in the 0.472" - 1.850" (12 mm - 47 mm) range.

The 4TEX drill's design increases core strength, improving hole size and straightness. "The flute space of the internal cutting-edge side, where chips often cluster, is 1.6 times larger than typical IC drills," said the spokesperson. The additional space coupled with dual-twisted coolant outlets improve penetration rates by enhancing coolant flow and generating enhanced chip evacuation.

The insert geometries are optimized for wear resistance and are available in geometry/coating combinations for all ISO materials including iron, steel, non-ferrous, stainless steel and high-temperature alloys. Its distinctive insert shape is designed to improve surface finish, hole quality and penetration rates, while eliminating issues from chips winding around the tool. The drills are stocked in both imperial and metric shanks with standard fractional diameters, as well as every 1/2 mm diameter up to 26 mm and every 1 mm up to 47 mm for fast delivery.
