Mapal says it has set a new standard in drilling with its Tritan-Drill range (featuring three cutting edges) which is being gradually expanded. For instance, a new universal version, made from HSS, has been specifically developed to maximise cost effectiveness in small-series production.
Thanks to the shape of its main cutting edge, the Tritan-Drill-HSS is robust, even in difficult drilling situations, says the company. Stable cutting edge corners mean that damage to the edge geometry is reduced, which allows for both greatly improved results and smooth machining. The coating of the Tritan-Drill-HSS is optimised for universal machining. As a result, the drill can be used for different materials while maintaining a long tool life, reports Mapal.
According to the company, the Tritan-Drill-HSS can achieve feeds up to 50% higher than twin-edged HSS drills, while at the same time has a tool life that is up to four times longer. Due to the special point geometry of the Tritan-Drill-HSS, piloting and centre-punching are not necessary. The tool can also be used on hand drills, with the pronounced drill tip preventing it from slipping over the chisel edge (in contrast to drills with two cutting edges).
Mapal’s Tritan Drill-HSS is available in a diameter range from 8 to 40 mm.
