Rotary tooling program

AUSTECH 2009 will provide visitors with the first opportunity to view the latest additions to Dormer’s rotary tooling program which will be displayed on stand E30.

Taking centre stage will be the new CDX-Al drill, designed specifically for high-performance drilling in all types of aluminium.

The R587 (3xD) and R583 (5xD) CDX-Al feature a unique point geometry (worldwide patent pending) which reduces thrust forces required to drive the drill through the workpiece, which the company claims, significantly reducing entry and exit burr.

Another new product on show will be ‘Hydra’ – a replaceable head drilling solution available with two solid carbide head types: one for stainless steel and cast iron, another for carbon and alloy steels.

A range of drill bodies are available for depths of 3xD, 5xD and 8xD and each can accommodate multiple head sizes with no compromise on structural integrity.
