Kennametal: Carbide Drills

October 29, 2002
Kennametal has introduced several new solid carbide Dynapoint drills that handle intersecting holes and other difficult cuts, high silicon aluminum, and drill and chamfer in a single operation. Sculptured Edge (SE) 256 drills have two margins per flute, providing the stability needed to handle inclined planes and intersecting holes. The SE 731 and SE 732 drills can drill and chamfer in a single pass prior to tapping to reduce cycle time and increase productivity. The company's TXD drills include a polycrystalline diamond (PCD) tip to provide dramatic improvements in cutting speed and tool life on high silicon aluminums, due to margin-to-margin PCD.
