PRODUCT SHOWCASE: Solid Carbide Drills from Seco Tools
May 05, 2011
Seco Tools has announced additions to its line of Feedmax™ solid carbide drills that avoid delamination upon entry or exit when drilling in carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) materials. The new –C1 geometry features a sharp optimized double points, while the –C2 geometry is specifically designed to drill stacked CFRP with an aluminum or titanium outer layer. To combat the abrasive properties of CFRP the Feedmax –C1 and –C2 incorporate a polycrystalline diamond coating, which also provides good dimensional tolerance. The new drills are 5xD with diameters ranging from 0.1260”-0.5”. All –C1 and –C2 drills feature through-coolant holes. For more information please visit [www.secotools.com].
