TaeguTec’s Large Selection Machines any Material Quickly and Efficiently
Drilling into any material can be a headache especially when machine shops work with different materials and the issues of quality, production and cost start to factor into the finished product.
TaeguTec, Asia’s metalworking giant, has several options for those looking to perform efficient drilling operations no matter if the factor relies upon the speed of production, the amount of money shops wants to save, the materials being drilled into or a combination of all these factors.
One of the industry’s favorite choices when it comes to drilling into everything from alloy steel to stainless steel is TaeguTec’s DrillRush – the versatile indexable drill that is constantly being expanded to provide dependable, optimal hole drilling performances on any material including difficult to handle composites.
The various DrillRush geometries and sizes of 1.5xD, 3xD, 5xD, 8xD and 12xD, not only increase productivity but improve on tool life due to its reinforced edges and coating, which are suitably designed for optimal chip control and hole quality on any material.
The quick head changeable system improves head indexing on machines and drastically cuts on machining downtime while DrillRush’s flexibility of one drill body for a series of different sized heads helps managers with inventory, cuts on machining cost and production cost.
DrillRush’s twisted coolant channel and polished chip gullet drills smoothly into any material while also evacuating chips without harming either the workpiece or any part of the tool. Furthermore, DrillRush is covered with the TT9080, a multi-layered coating grade that prolongs the tool’s life.
Its rigid connection offers remarkable performance and maximum number of head indexing.
This is not only a versatile tool that has blown away the competition in every test; it also comes in different sizes.
TaeguTec recently introduced two new sizes; the first is the 12xD drill that produces deep holes accurately, repeatedly and economically.
The DrillRush 12xD drill range for deeper hole drilling and the body’s polished flutes offers smooth chip evacuation without damaging the surface finish.
The strong delivery of coolant through its twisted body channels keeps the drill and workpiece material cool at all times while minimizing cycle times when drilling diameters from 12 millimeters to 22.9 mm.
The DrillRush 12xD’s tight manufacturing tolerance and good run-out enables for reliable and accurate performance every time.
Other important factors that are now resolved with the introduction and expansion of TaeguTec’s DrillRush 12xD body are repeatability, smooth surface finish and the high productivity aspired upon for deep hole drilling applications without the need for pecking cycles.
The newest member of the DrillRush line was just released this spring and has taken over machine shops almost immediately. The DrillRush 6 mm to 6.9 mm diameter range drill heads were designed to handle 1.5xD, 3xD and 5xD drilling depths.
This innovative exchangeable drill’s performance exceeds small carbide drills available in the market today for small diameter machining and its rigid clamping system for stable drilling offers excellent performance and high productivity in small diameters. Furthermore, it is also available for ISO M8 standard pre-thread hole machining.
Like all DrillRush products, the new small line eliminates the need to remove the entire drill from the spindle in order to replace the head; a process that shortens the work load into a single operation which in turn shortens cycle times and substantially increases productivity.
Ace in the Hole
For producing cost effective and competitive large diameter holes, TaeguTec has introduced the SpadeRush, a new line of high productivity head changeable drills for large diameter hole making that removes the challenges imposed on machine and cutting tools performing such operations.
The SpadeRush’s smoother method of making large-diameter holes that stays within the cycle times necessary to be competitive has been accentuated with an optimized cutting edge and unique rigid clamping system that generates higher productivity and outstanding performance.
Available as a standard drill in 3xD and 5xD for a diameter range of 26 mm to 41 mm, the SpadeRush’s unique clamping technology enables operators to quickly change drill heads without removing the clamping screw from the holder – an important feature that greatly reduces tool setting times and also machining downtime.
Furthermore, the asymmetrical bottom design of TaeguTec’s SpadeRush avoids errors while mounting the insert, offers high tolerance, improved tool accuracy as well as repeatability and produces an excellent surface finish.
Its self-centered design eliminates the pre-centering function that many shops have to contend with when performing large diameter hole making applications.
Moreover, the SpadeRush’s stronger rigid screw clamp not only improves productivity but also cuts on machining cost.
To keep the material cool during high-speed applications, SpadeRush’s through coolant hole feature permits coolant to be applied directly to and in the hole-making area which prevents the tool and holder from premature wear and damage.
The post-treatment of the SpadeRush’s flute design improves chip evacuation, reduces power consumption and strengthens vibration dampening; all factors that strengthen the tools durability.
The Top of Drill
For cost effective machining and higher productivity, the TopDrill line has been built to satisfy a growing market demand for flexibility and excellent performance due to its true 4-coner inserts that are suitable for both internal and external pockets, reduces inventory and promotes cost reduction.
The holder’s prominent flute shape with helix type internal coolant ensures chip evacuation and machining stability.
TopDrill’s ideally configured cutting edges enable optimum chip control minimizing cutting load and ensures remarkable machining performance on conventional carbon and alloy steel as well as difficult to machine materials, including low carbon and mild steel.
From top to bottom, the TopDrill has been built for improved tool life and is equipped with a new insert grade for enhanced durability.
This highly popular tool comes as a standard full line series with diameter ranges from 14 mm-50 mm and holder sizes available in 2xD, 3xD, 4xD, and 5xD types.
Double the Efficiency
Last but not least is the newest member of TaeguTec’s drilling family, the TwinRush – a new product that guarantees excellent performance and high productivity while making large diameter holes.
On first glance, the noticeable feature of the TwinRush joins together a centering insert with a pair of precise square inserts on either side in order to combine two different drill types onto one drill body, and protects them with TaeguTec’s TT9080 PVD multi-layered coated grade.
The centering insert is TaeguTec’s revolutionary and highly popular DrillRush indexable head which enables precision self-centered machining for achieving hole concentricity.
Both outer inserts are a newly designed economical 4-corner SPGX type that comes equipped with a wiper ground area in order to promote improved surface roughness. When compared to conventional inner/outer indexable type drills, the SPGX type inserts’ symmetrical alignment offers double the productivity.
Further benefits include an internal through hole coolant system, a hardened body for rigidity, smooth surface and wear resistance due to the drill’s post–treatment process.
The TwinRush is offered in a diameter range from 26 to 45 mm, 5xD drilling depth of cut and is available as standard items.
