Walter’s D3120 indexable insert drill is designed to provide trouble-free drilling in virtually any condition. It features square positive indexable inserts with four cutting edges. Available in five diameter sizes ranging from 0.63" to 1.654" (16 mm to 42 mm) and with 2x, 3x, 4x Dc, the drill is said to enable process reliability with simple chip removal, two coolant channels and polished flutes. Protection against friction is provided by the hardened and polished surfaces. 

The drill features one indexable insert shape for both outer and inner seat, and a measuring collar for diameter identification. The drill is especially useful for ISO material groups P (steels), M (stainless steels), K (cast irons), N (nonferrous) and S (super alloys). Torx Plus screws give it secure indexable insert clamping and high stability in all working conditions, according to the company. The drill also features long tool life because of the company’s Tiger-tec Silver grades.


  • Getting the Most Out of Hard Turning

    Traditionally, production of most parts made from hard or hardened materials, defined as those at or more than 45 HRc, required dedicated grinding equipment and processes.

  • Swiss-Type Machines: More Than Just A Lathe

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.

  • Broaching On A Lathe

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
