Today, EMUGE-FRANKEN USA, a leading manufacturer of high-performance taps, thread mills, end mills, drills, and other rotary tools, has introduced a full line of 3XD and 5XD high quality solid carbide multipurpose drills that are ideal for a wide range of materials and applications typically found in high mix – low volume job shop environments.
“Our extensive research and testing has resulted in a completely new high penetration rate drill design providing everyday use and maximum productivity,” said Marlon Blandon, Product Manager, Drills, Thread Milling.
EMUGE MultiDRILL™ is made of a unique sub-micro grain carbide grade that is harder than conventional carbide grades for drilling, yet it retains the ability to withstand shock and chipping. MultiDRILL features advanced TIALN-T63 coating utilizing nano-layer technology with surface hardness exceeding standard TIALN-based coatings, for reduced friction at high temperatures.
Featuring cutting edges with a convex geometry, MultiDRILL has higher chip shearing ability and a tightly controlled edge preparation process that provides consistent performance and long tool life. In addition, a double margin design helps stabilize the drill in the cut, allowing rounder, more accurate holes. Another unique MultiDRILL feature is a drill web construction with a wide open flute form for maximum chip evacuation. MultiDRILLs are also self-centering, eliminating pre-spot drilling applications, and all tools feature coolant-thru capability.
EMUGE MultiDRILL is available in 3XD and 5XD sizes from 0.1181 to 0.7500 inch, a total of 372 SKUs in the program.
