New Niagara Cutter Universal Drill Features Enhanced Multi-purpose Geometry

Developed with optimum performance and value in mind, the new Universal Drill from Niagara Cutter will soon hit the market. The solid-carbide drill combines a special multi-purpose geometry with advanced coating technology to provide reliable, predictable tool life and the lowest cost per hole, especially in high-volume production environments.

The Universal Drill’s rigid four-facet point geometry provides excellent centering capability, maintains an IT8/9 hole tolerance and is easy to regrind. A polished AlCrN coating gives the drill high abrasion resistance, toughness and good chip evacuation capabilities.

Well suited for holemaking applications across all industry segments and a wide scope of workpiece materials, including steels, stainless steels and cast irons, the versatility of the Universal Drill helps reduce required tooling inventories.

Available drill diameter sizes range from 3 mm to 20 mm with increments of 0.1 mm. For efficient chip evacuation, the 5 x D and 3 x D length drills with cylindrical shanks offer the option of through-tool coolant capability. All Universal Drills are compatible with Seco shrinkfit holders, hydraulic chucks and high-precision collet chucks.
