Allied Machine & Engineering’s 4TEX drill is designed to deliver optimal chip formation and is said to provide high penetration rates. This indexable insert drill is especially useful in applications with interrupted cuts or drilling on angled surfaces. The drill is also useful for making shallow 2×d, 3×d and 4×d holes in a range of 12 mm-47 mm (0.472"-1.850").

The design is said to provide increased core strength, improve hole size and straightness. According to the company, dual twisted coolant outlets improve penetration rates by enhancing coolant flow and generating superior chip formation and evacuation. The drill inserts are four-sided to maximize the tool life of each insert. Available geometries have been developed for steel, stainless steel, high temperature alloys, non-ferrous and iron, which are optimized for optimal chip formation and wear resistance in difficult applications, the company says.
