Guided TA Drill for Deep Hole Moldmaking Applications

Allied Machine & Engineering, a manufacturer of holemaking and finishing cutting tools, offers the Guided T-A drill for moldmaking applications.

"Moldmakers often use Guided T-A drills to produce water lines, which include intersecting holes in varying diameters depending on the size of the mold," said a company spokesperson. Holes are drilled to allow chilled coolant to flow through the mold blocks and back out to be re-chilled.

"There are two major hurdles for moldmakers of large components: tool failure in deep cross-holes and successful chip evacuation," said the spokesperson. "Mold waterlines include intersecting channels that often connect off-center or at non-perpendicular angles. The interrupted cuts can cause premature tool failure if the drill cannot produce balanced cutting forces in this type of cross-hole machining. In addition, deep holes can present issues with proper chip formation and removal. It is imperative to form small chips that can be evacuated successfully from such long channels."

The Guided T-A drill is designed to address both of these challenges. The drill minimizes the clearance between the holder and blade and maintains increased stability in deeper holes. It incorporates guided wear pads for straightness and stability and two adjustable Torx PLUS screw pins for TIR reduction through a simple diameter adjustment. These details enable the Guided T-A to drill up to an 84" depth of cut while producing balanced cutting forces and small chips for optimal evacuation.
