Tooling giant Walter GB of Bromsgrove has launched the new Walter Titex XD70 deep drill for depths up to 30 times diameter as standard and up to 70 times diameter as semi-standard – in one operation and without the need for ventilation.
The drills for 16, 20, 25 and 30 times diameter are based on the renowned Titex Alpha 4 XD geometry; while X.treme DH (Deep High tensile) versions have been optimised for high tensile material machining and interrupted cuts at depths of up to 20 and 30 times diameter.
A number of XD features permit the generation of such deep holes without ventilation and in a single operation: a new and innovative method of solid carbide blank production, for the consistent manufacture of high-integrity long solid carbide twist drills; a special grinding process; and the use of internal coolant channels that do not require special equipment such as external high-pressure systems.
The Walter Titex XD70 technology is currently offered in diameters from 5 to 12 mm.
