A solid carbide drill optimized for holemaking in steels, Feedmax -P was designed to harness the power and efficiency of modern machine tools to maximize your cutting data across these applications. When increasing cutting speeds while drilling steel, you face unique challenges in terms of chip evacuation, high heat generation and burrs at the hole entrance and exit. Feedmax -P was designed specifically to overcome these issues and allow for substantial productivity gains.
These days, manufacturers are searching every nook and cranny in their organizations for ways to reduce costs. For example, our customers want toolholders, insert grades and geometries that perform better, and they want them at a lower cost. While the latest advancements in cutting tools and machining techniques deliver increased productivity, better surface finishes and longer tool lives, manufacturers can also maximize machining efforts and reduce costs through machine operator education.
Holemaking is one of the most common metalworking operations. It’s a critical operation that requires matching the right process with each job to maximize profitability. Boring is often considered the go-to method, but more manufacturers are finding reaming to be a better option in some high volume or high-cost part applications.
