Drilling steel just got faster

Sandvik Coromant has launched an upgraded assortment of its CoroDrill 860 solid-carbide drill to offer customers improved productivity in drilling steel. The advanced -PM geometry delivers high-performance drilling in ISO P steels while significantly improving tool life, reports the company.

CoroDrill 860 with -PM geometry features a new grade, with an improved multi-layer PVD coating. The results include enhanced wear resistance, better tool life, an overall increase in productivity and, subsequently, reduced cost-per-component. The drill is suited to applications in the automotive, general engineering, toolmaking and power-generation industries.

Coming in standard stocked diameters from 3 to 16 mm, tailor-made tools are also available to customise the drill to specific user requirements. To receive quotations and place orders for customised drill options, simply visit the Sandvik Coromant website.

To further extend tool life and to support a more sustainable machining strategy, the CoroDrill 860-PM is suitable for the Sandvik Coromant tool reconditioning programme. Furthermore, following end of life, the tool can enter the company’s recycling scheme.

James Thorpe, global product manager at Sandvik Coromant, says: “We’re always upgrading our offer and understand that improved productivity, along with achieving lower cost per component, are two major requirements of customers. The introduction of this next-generation solid-carbide drill with an improved PVD coating will enable customers to improve process security, productivity, quality and cost.”
