The drills are internally cooled. Thanks to shallow grooves, the coolant flows unimpeded, while hazardous chip jams are at the same time avoided. Because of the new design, the liquid washes around the drill continuously, producing a unique cooling effect. The company noted that solid carbide mass directly behind the cutting edge is responsible for the drill's sturdiness. An effect of the new type of alignment of the lands is significantly smoother drill running, the supplier also explained.

According to the company, the first two models in the dimensions 16 x D and 20 x D are available now.
