Ingersoll’s TwistSFeed drills use a self-centering point to ensure optimal performance.
Ingersoll’s TwistSFeed drill family features a three-flute quick-change tip with an upgraded clamping mechanism designed to maximize productivity. Unlike conventional three-flute solid carbide drills, these new drills use a self-centering point to ensure optimal performance, precision and stability for all applications, the company says.
The TwistSFeed replaceable tip drills reduce costs by improving tool life due to their multiple flutes that include a IN2205 coating designed for steel and cast iron applications, the company says. The clamping mechanism is designed to enable the simple replacement of drill tips and accommodates multiple tip diameters per drill body, which is said to facilitate economical stock management.
Tips are available in diameters from 0.6299"to 0.8288," and bodies include 3xD and 5xD L:D ratios.
