Allied Machine & Engineering features the Gen3sys XT drill for increased tool life, reliability and productivity in high penetration rate drilling applications, the company says. Available with the company’s AM300 coating and in multiple geometries, the drill is designed to provide excellent chip control, improved durability and added stability in a range of applications from 11 mm to 35 mm. It is available for standard GEN3SYS holders with a choice of flute styles and uses corner and enhancements to deliver increased hole quality, surface finish and true position.

To that point, there are four geometries available for Gen3sys XT: standard (XT), austenitic stainless steel (AS), cast iron (CI) and low rake (LR). The XT geometry is available in two carbide substrates and provides benefits in a range of materials. The AS geometry uses Allied’s AM300 coating and provides excellent chip control and tool life in austenitic and PH stainless steels, as well as high temperature alloys such as Inconel, Hastelloy and titanium. The CI geometry, also in combination with the AM300 coating, delivers increased durability and tool life in ductile, nodular and grey cast irons. Low rake (LR), the toughest Gen3sys geometry offered, is designed for harder steels and less than ideal machining conditions.
