Time for the next generation

Dormer Pramet has launched a new generation of solid carbide multi-application drills. Force X drills, which replace the company’s MPX assortment, have received a significant upgrade, including new geometry, corner design and edge preparation. The improvements apply to the 3xD R457 and R458, and the 5xD R453 and R454, bringing them in-line with the newly launched 8xD R459. 

Retaining the TiAlN coating, all drills continue to be suitable for use across a range of machines and materials, such as stainless steel, alloy steels, cast iron and non-ferrous materials. As part of the enhancements, each of the Force X drills now include continuously thinned web (CTW) technology, which is said to provide a very strong web design, reducing thrust requirements during drilling. 

All drills feature consistent edge preparation, protecting the cutting area and preventing premature chipping and flaking. A strong corner design across the range also increases stability and reduces the forces encountered when exiting the workpiece. The micro-grain carbide substrate, along with the TiAlN coating, offers high wear resistance and increased tool life, while the 140° split point geometry provides precise centring capabilities and low thrust forces, says the company.

Offering both solid and coolant feed options to improve cutting efficiency and swarf evacuation, Dormer Pramet says that the new Force X range contributes to high productivity and improved performance.
