Dormer Pramet has extended its Force program of solid carbide drills with a specific range for stainless steel applications.
The Force M assortment of drills provide a high level of productivity consistently across a diverse variety of machines and conditions. This makes them ideal for general engineering and sub-contract environments.
Their introduction within the company’s Dormer range, follows the recent launch of the Force X drilling family for use in a wide range of materials.
All the Force program of drills feature a modified four-facet split point geometry, to enhance self-centering and hole-quality. Also, this improves chip formation, tool strength and wear‐resistance.
A unique feature of the Force drills is their Continuously Thinned Web (CTW) technology flute construction. This offers a very strong web design, while at the same time reducing thrust forces during drilling. Combined with the drills’ consistent edge preparation, which provides predictable wear, CTW supports a highly consistent and reliable drilling process.
Each drill in the Force range is manufactured from premium micro-grain carbide to provide an excellent combination of hardness and toughness, resulting in high wear resistance and longer tool life.
A strong corner design increases stability and reduces the forces encountered during breakthrough when exiting the surface, in both general drilling and cross-hole applications.
Supporting drilling depths of 3xD (R467) and 5xD (R463), the Force M drills feature internal coolant delivery in sizes from 3mm to 16mm and 1/8 to 5/8 inch.
