Tungaloy’s DrillMeister Exchangeable-Head Drill Series Adds Smaller Diameters
Iwaki, September 2019 — Tungaloy expands the drill diameter range of the DrillMeister exchangeable-head drills to include ø8.0 mm to ø11.9 mm in 12xD body length.
DrillMeister features a unique self-locking interface that assures easy and secure drill head exchange. Since drill heads can be exchanged without removing the entire drill body from the spindle, setup time is significantly reduced, eliminating presetting, offset, and touch-off of the replaced tool. The drill head is mounted or removed from the body by simply twisting the head with a dedicated key wrench while on the machine spindle. In addition, the drill body features optimized helical flutes with a high helix angle and specially treated surface to efficiently evacuate chips from the cutting point to the outside. This makes the tool ideal for deep hole drilling where chip evacuation is usually problematic.
