First Indexable Drill For 7xD Hole Depth

The CoroDrill DS20 indexable drill from Sandvik Coromant offers reliability and predictability for longer tool life in four 7xD applications. Replacing the CoroDrill 880 and CoroDrill 881 tools, the DS20 can improve tool life up to 25 percent. 

CoroDrill DS20 drills are initially available in diameters .591 to 1.575 inc (15 mm to 40 mm) with a selection of shank types, insert sizes, grades, and geometries to suit all material types and applications.
The new modular drilling interface (MDI) acts as a coupling between the drill and adapter. Flange and surface contact between the drill body and nut provides increased stability and promotes hole quality.
Newly designed body and inserts provides users with reliable chip control and outstanding penetration rates in all four 7xD applications.
A slewing bearing or slew[ing] ring is a rotational rolling-element bearing that typically supports a heavy but slow-turning or slow-oscillating load, often a horizontal platform such as a conventional crane, a swing yarder, or the wind-facing platform of a horizontal-axis windmill. Slewing rings may be small, but they power some of the toughest machines in the industry.

The CoroDrill DS20 from Sandvik Coromant is the first indexable drill concept capable of producing hole depths up to 7xD. Featuring newly designed body and inserts, the drill provides users with reliable, predictable chip control and outstanding penetration rates in all four 7xD applications.

Replacing the existing CoroDrill 880 and CoroDrill 881 tools, CoroDrill DS20 indexable drills provide tool life improvements of up to 25% and productivity gains up to 10%, depending on workpiece material.

To complement the introduction, the company is releasing a new modular drilling interface (MDI) that acts as a coupling between the drill and adapter. Available in Coromant Capto and HSK shank types, the MDI provides high precision, excellent centering capabilities, and reduced tool inventory.

CoroDrill DS20 drills are both versatile and cost-efficient, increasing tool life and productivity in nearly all workpiece materials compared to current best-in-class concepts. No pilot drilling is needed.

Among the most important factors when drilling to depths of more than 5xD are controlled cutting forces, secure chip evacuation, and high centering capabilities, says Hakan Carlbert, senior R&D engineer, Indexable Drilling. Going from a 5XD to a 7xD drill, the theoretical difficulty increases approximately threefold due to an increased inclination to bend. Designing the CoroDrill DS20 7xD drill required careful consideration of around 50 parameters that all depend on each other. The outcome is improved process security through lower forces and lighter cutting, particularly at entry. In turn, users achieve lower cost per hole, the ability to drill deeper, and reduced sound levels.

The drill body is strong and fatigue-resistant with higher levels of stiffness than previously achieved, while chip flute shapes are individually designed for each drill size and insert. This combination of factors leads to less vibration, predictable wear patterns, and increased tool life. In addition, next-generation double-step technology reduces entry cutting forces by up to 75% compared to CoroDrill 880 tools, improving centering capabilities. Strong insert design and bulk strength provide extra toughness, with four true cutting edges on both center and peripheral inserts.

Regarding the new MDI, double centering with high fitting accuracy enables good run-out precision and optimal repeatability. Here, flange and surface contact between the drill body and nut provides increased stability and promotes hole quality. One size can be used for several drill diameters.

CoroDrill DS20 drills are initially available in diameters .591 in to 1.575 in (15 mm to 40 mm) with a selection of shank types, insert sizes, grades, and geometries to suite all material types and applications, including those found across the general engineering, automotive, oil and gas, pump and valve, and aerospace sectors.

Additional diameters up to 2.559 in (65 mm) will be added to the series.
