The WTX 180 drill from WNT, which is designed to create true 180deg flat-bottomed holes, is eliminating costly second operations due to its point geometry, Ti800 coating and carbide substrate.

The WTX 180 drill makes full use of its four-facet geometry and polished flutes to deliver productivity gains.

The drill geometry also ensures optimum hole roundness and surface quality.

The WTX 180 drills machine from solid and produce a flat-bottomed hole in a single pass on angled (up to 45deg), concave or convex surfaces, without the need for any pre-machining.

The drills take full advantage of the standard 3x and 5x diameter-to-length-ratio flute lengths, as the carbide substrate is able to resist bending and torsional stresses.

The highly polished flutes allow evacuation of swarf, even when drilling to full depth.

The WTX 180 is also able to operate at cutting data normally associated with conventional drills.

‘The range extends from 4mm through to 20mm diameter, in steps of 0.1mm up to 12mm with some intermediate sizes being available – 5.55mm, for example,’ said Adrian Fitts, business development manager, WNT.

‘Above 12mm diameter the steps are fewer, falling on the 0.5 and 0.8mm increments, and the ability to regrind and recoat will provide long-term cost reductions when drilling flat-bottomed holes,’ he added.
