New WalterKrato-tec coating advanced drill

With its X•treme Evo Plus drill, Walter is launching a new tool in the DC180 Supreme product range. Krato•tec coating technology for drilling and reaming tools now extends the market potential of these solid-carbide drills. This is credit to the WJ30EZ grade – developed in-house at Walter – with an AlTiN multi-layer coating that enables the drills to reach high cutting speeds. It also makes the drill suitable for universal use in all ISO materials from groups P, M, K, N, S and H.

When compared with alternative products, the DC180 Supreme has a tool life that is up to 50% longer, reports Walter. The drill with internal coolant channels is for use with emulsions, oil and MQL. Its geometry incorporates a straight cutting edge that gives it a high level of stability and process reliability. Walter offers the DC180 Supreme with a diameter from 3 to 20mm for a diverse range of applications.

As standard, Walter is introducing the DC180 Supreme in dimensions of 3xD in accordance with DIN 6537 short and also 5xD following DIN 6537 long to its range. The tool specialist can also offer special tools with intermediate sizes and step drills upon request with short delivery times via its Walter Xpress service.

Walter Xtreme Evo Plus drills from the DC180 range are part of the Supreme product line for large-quantity production runs and heavy-duty drilling operations. Thanks to its long tool life, high productivity and high wear resistance in demanding applications, Walter says that the DC180 Supreme reduces costs and is suitable for difficult machining operations.
