Dover, OH - Allied Machine & Engineering, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and hole finishing tooling systems, announces the new 4TEX drill. Engineered to create optimal chip formation for efficient evacuation in holemaking processes, the drill outperforms other standard drills by delivering higher penetration rates in light-duty machines. 4TEX excels in challenging applications that include interrupted cuts or angled surfaces and in drilling high-temperature alloys and stainless steels. The indexable insert drill is ideal for making shallow 2xD, 3xD, and 4xD holes in the 0.472” – 1.850” (12mm – 47mm) range.
The 4TEX drill’s unique design increases core strength, improving hole size and straightness. The flute space of the internal cutting edge side, where chips often cluster, is 1.6 times larger than typical IC drills. Dual twisted coolant outlets improve penetration rates by enhancing coolant flow and generating superior chip evacuation.
Industries working with a variety of materials – especially aerospace, heavy equipment, automotive, and energy industry applications – will benefit from the excellent chip formation provided by the 4TEX drill’s unique geometries.
