Korea – In its centenary year, Taegutec will return to Mach after a 10-year absence.
The company will mark its return with the presentation of its new Drill Rush line, its “marquee” indexible head drilling line. This line is available in diameters ranging from 6 to 25.9 mm, with most variants in 0.1 mm increments.
According to the company, the characteristics of the Drill Rush eliminate the need for pecking cycles which help to reduce cycle times. It is available in shank diameters of 12, 16, 20, 25 and 32 mm; this is said to help boost rigidity when conducting high speed drilling on aluminum and non-metallic materials through to steel, iron-hardened steel and high temperature alloys. The indexible heads are available in appropriate sizes and geometries for the respective materials.
Taegutec has also introduced a line of flat-bottom inserts available in diameters from 8 to 25.5 mm in 0.5 mm increments, for drilling flat bottomed holes. This series complements the recently launched double-margin indexible heads. The new drill heads which are available with its latest Goldrush TT9080 insert grade, the company adds, provide surface finishes above Ra 1.6 µm.
Other exhibits include the new 12XD drills. They have polished flutes, through coolant and a wide chip gullet with an optimised geometry and is intended to rapidly evacuate swarf from the drill point for rigid and accurate drilling of holes.
