Walter USA’​​​s DC150 Perform 5 × Dc drill is a solid carbide drill that can be used universally with materials and with a range of workpieces. Like the others in the company’s Perform line, the drill is especially useful for small-and medium-batch sizes needed to be machined with precision and process reliability.

The drill is designed to be used without internal coolant. Features of the existing Perform drill line, such as wear-resistance and good chip evacuation, have been included in this addition, along with geometry, which includes a 140-degree point angle for positioning accuracy.

Until now, the Perform line included length-to-diameter ranges of 3, 5, 8, and 12 × Dc, all with internal coolant capability. The 5 × Dc for external coolant complements the 3 × Dc offering for external coolant and enables the user to select the product that best fits the application of the operation.

    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.
