Sunnen Offers New DirectDex Line To Replace Sandvik Deep-Hole Drilling Tools

New DirectDex line of drill heads and consumables are compatible and directly interchangeable with Sandvik’s CoroDrill 800 deep-hole drilling tools.

Sunnen Products Company now offers a new series of drill heads, inserts and pads that are directly interchangeable with Sandvik deep-hole drilling tools. The new line, Sunnen DirectDexÒ, features BTA/STS (Single Tube System) and DTS/Ejector (Double Tube System) style deep-hole drilling tools designed to produce a low cost-per-bore with consistent performance. The new product series directly corresponds to the previously available line of Sandvik drill heads, inserts, and guide pads, with additional product series set to be released soon.

CVD- and PVD-coated inserts are available in two grades, providing excellent wear resistance and toughness. The CVD-coated inserts are optimal for machining heat-resistant super alloys and also work well with ISO P, K, H and N materials. The PVD-coated inserts are specifically designed for ISO P, K, H and N materials, and also provide resistance against built-up edges.

“We are excited to be able to fill the recently created void in the market for Sandvik-style tooling,” said Chris Miltenberger, President and COO of Sunnen Products Company. “This is congruent with our strategy to be the one source solution for systems and tooling related to bore machining, whether the process used is deep-hole drilling, skiving/roller burnishing, lapping, or honing.”
