Seco’s new range of Feedmax-P solid carbide drills provide increased productivity

Seco’s new range of Feedmax-P solid carbide drills are said to provide component manufacturers with increased productivity (up to 35% higher) and improved tool life when machining ISO P (steel) and cast iron.

Featuring a new geometry and an advanced TiAIN coating, the new range delivers improved chip management and control, and helps manufacturers increase process reliability. The end result being that manufacturers can drill holes faster (productivity) and use fewer drills (economy).

Feedmax-P drills have strong straight cutting edges with coolant holes located close to the cutting edges that enables the tool and workpiece to be cooled more efficiently and effectively. Narrow land margins on Feedmax-P drills help minimise the effect of heat generated on the drills – and an improved flute design protects the drill point and delivers improved chip evacuation.

With their new TiAIN coating, which delivers improved tool life when machining high heat-generating applications, combined with their strong point geometry, cutting speeds up to 190m/min when machining SMG P5 (structural steels) can be achieved without causing excessive tool wear.

Feedmax-P drills are available in diameters ranging from 2mm to 20mm and in length-to-diameter ratios of 3xD, 5xD and 7xD.

Internal coolant supply is available as standard to ensure maximum performance, and customised options (i.e. intermediate sizes, chamfer and step drill versions etc.), are available on request.
