Kennametal has introduced an expansion of its solid carbide drilling portfolio, the HPX drill for high performance, large volume drilling in steel. Designed to quickly and efficiently punch holes up to 8 x D in any ISO-P steel material, the HPX drill provides up to twice the tool life and three times the productivity compared to competing products, even in dry or minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) applications.
What makes the HPX drill the superior choice for Steel applications is its design. Steels are used for a wide variety of applications, often in production volumes where maximum tool life and throughput is critical. Yet steel creates a high degree of mechanical loading during drilling operations resulting in forces that lead to rapid tool wear and chipping of the tool´s more vulnerable corners. Kennametal has eliminated this failure point by applying a small corner chamfer and straightening the HPX drill´s cutting edges.
