Kennametal’s KenTIP FS combines the KSEM modular drill system with the low feed forces of its smaller companion drill, KenTIP. The resulting fusion of these holemaking technologies is a 6-mm to 26-mm, 1.5 to 12 × D modular drill that’s simple to use, produces good hole quality, and can compete with solid carbide drills across a range of materials, the company says.

FS denotes the tool’s full solid carbide tip and looks like the tip of a solid carbide drill. According to the company, that means the carbide tip fully covers and protects the steel holder from washing out. The KenTIP FS also has a disposable carbide insert, coolant through the tool, and a helical flute for chip removal.
