SOLID CARBIDE high performance drills Record VA i a. VA, with which we have added another tool in our extensive range for the processing of VA materials can also be used in titanium alloys and Ni alloys.

Very good results were also in low-alloy steels.

New cat. No. 6051XB in DIN 6537K without internal coolant,
drilling depth up to 3 x D, range Ø 3.0 mm to Ø 16.0 mm

New cat. No. 6052XB in DIN 6537L with internal coolant,
drilling depth up to 5 x D, range Ø 3.0 mm to Ø 16.0 mm The blue surface coating TINALOX is an eye catcher.
The flutes were polished prior to coating, whereby the surface is extremely wear resistant.

Here is a report from our customers:
