Iscar Slashing hole making times, manufacturing costs
Israel – With the launch of several products, Iscar has expanded its range of hole cutting tools. The Sumocham drilling heads, for instance, are said to slash machining cycle times, requiring only half the number of tools for a given drilling operation.
The global metal machining industry requires even faster, more accurate and longer lasting hole cutting tools which are able to deliver higher quality control standards. According to cutting tool company Iscar, it is able to slash hole making times, reduce users’ costs and improve product quality. The company has recently announced the launch of several products.
Drilling heads feature advanced geometry
Iscar has expanded its Sumocham drilling head line with the introduction of a range of drilling heads that feature a ground-breaking new geometry, the supplier says. The advanced new drilling heads are said to feature unique, concave cutting edges which allow gradual entry into material. This measured penetration reportedly reduces torque and cutting forces, significantly enhances the drills’ self-centering capability and results in improved hole circularity, straightness, concentricity and surface finish. In addition, tighter dimensional tolerances are able to be achieved, Iscar says. Available in 8 to 25.9 mm diameters, in 0.1 mm increments, the HCP-IQ drilling heads enable the use of long drills of up to 12 x D, without the need for drilling a pilot hole, and are ideal for drilling precise holes prior to reaming operations, the company says.
The HCP drilling heads are made from the superior IC908 TiAlN PVD nano-layer coating grade, providing extended tool life, including superior peeling resistance and slow, stable wear progression, Iscar explains. Also, by eliminating pilot hole operations, the drilling heads are said to slash machining cycle times and only half the number of tools are required for a given drilling operation.
