General drilling

Key information on general Drilling

There are a variety of machining strategies used in the metal working industry to produce top-quality components. General drilling comes with its own set of challenges. Contact us to find out more about related applications and the associated requirements.
What is general drilling, and what are the main factors to consider? Here are the things you need to know to succeed.

General drilling is often the final step in the production process. The drilling tool rotates to generate a cutting motion, with the feed movement (f((n))) running along the tool’s rotational axis.

Chip control is an important factor in machining. Chip jamming can cause radial movements and reduce hole quality and tool life. An internal supply of coolant has a positive effect on chip removal, which helps eliminate this issue. Requirements like hole quality, diameter and depth are critical factors when it comes to choosing the right solid carbide and indexable insert drills. Each type of tool has its own unique advantages. Along with offering high material removal rates (Q), indexable insert drills are versatile and can be used with any material. Conversely, solid carbide drills are the right choice if hole quality and strict bore tolerances are your primary concern.

ZCC Cutting Tools has the right drill for every application. Do you need help with your general drilling applications? Then contact us. We’re there to help.
