The engineering company says its replacement t-a rig system can significantly reduce downtime compared to solid tools. The t-a drilling system has high performance insertion and application for making engine block, crankshaft, piston and suspension parts. The cost of using the t-a drilling system is 25-50% lower than other options on the market.

It is reported that in the case of t – a drill line, every time the operator insert bit, will have a perfect factory or drill point on the ground, without stopping, for regrinding operation need to change the tool offset. These alternate techniques are consistent each time, unlike the changes that are often encountered when using different mechanics to drill ground.

The allied forces provide the cast iron (-ci) geometry for its t-a drill, which is an ideal choice for automotive applications. With a lower rake Angle and a harder cutting edge to make it more elastic, (-ci) bit is a good choice made of cast iron and head. You can also use training techniques for other specific applications. The Allies developed custom configurations for tools, including a special shape end at the end of the crankshaft.

The innovative coating for the t-a rig includes the exclusive WD200 coating of the allied forces, which improves performance and extends the service life of the cutter. A variety of insertion levels applicable to automotive applications, including carbonized carbide, a wear-resistant carbonized carbon and carbohydrate, is a good choice for aluminum and other nonferrous metals.

Steel applications using the CAN2 t-a drill can use the C1 option, which is the same as the original t-a, providing better performance and longer tool life for automotive applications.

The company has expanded its SAF replacement headdrill production line, including 12XD bit. The SAF’s replaceable head drill reportedly allows for deep excavation at a lower cost, as SAF users can purchase only one drill to reach the size of 5.

It adopts the original radial saw tooth joint design, SAF bit, or cutting edge, which is designed for high precision and stable drilling. Polished flute ensures good chip evacuation.

According to the company, SAF’s nickel-plated fuselage has a longer life span than a conventional removable drill. Hard alloy matrix with patented hard alloy coating has excellent wear resistance on cutting edge. A rigid saw tooth coupling system is used to fix the replaceable carbide tip on the drill bit, improving the precision and repeatability of the drill.

Sumitomo provides a series of drills to improve the performance of various materials. SAFT – MTL type bit is excellent in steel application, while SAFT -c has a chamfer edge to eliminate fracture in cast iron application. SAFT – MEL machine superalloy, stainless steel and cast iron processing power.

In addition to the new 12XD, sumitomo’s SAF line also includes 3XD, 5XD and 8XD replaceable hard alloy bits.
