Walter has introduced the D4140 replaceable tip drill, a tough and versatile new drill that delivers maximum process reliability and extended tool life. The D4140 advantage stems from its design and construction, featuring a hardened and polished surface that offers exceptional resistance to friction wear. The drill’s ground and polished flutes, similar to those of solid-carbide drills, ensure smooth and secure chip evacuation.
The drill’s design features precision coolant delivery directly to the cutting edge, avoiding thermal shocks to the edge and resulting in longer tool life and maximum process reliability. Additionally, the drill’s 100° prismatic insert seating for the P600x Xtra·tec® Point inserts provide secure clamping ensuring precise, high-quality holes. Drills are available in 3 x D, 5 x D and 7 x D and in 0.47 in. to 1.26 in. (12-31.99 mm) dia. The drills have universal applications in a variety of materials and users can also benefit from simple indexable insert selection through Walter Color Select.
