WIDIA™ announced the release of a new MS geometry insert for the company's TOP DRILL™ Modular X (TDMX) drill. With the MS geometry expansion, the TDMX platform now offers three material-specific inserts, widening the platform’s application capabilities to include inclined entry and exit, stacked plates and cross-hole drilling in stainless steel, super alloys, steel and cast iron materials. “The launch of the MS geometry insert for our TDMX portfolio gives customers a versatile tool for multiple workpiece materials and applications,” said Ashokkumar D., WIDIA Global Portfolio Manager. “This new MS geometry is designed to perform in different types of stainless steels and super alloys making it an ideal choice for customers looking for excellent stability and reliability in general engineering and energy machining operations.”

In a recent customer test, the TDMX body, paired with the new MS geometry insert, achieved a 60% increase in tool life versus competing solutions while machining a 13-8 Hyper Chrome 110 KSI workpiece material at 3XD with a cutting speed of 75m/min.

 

Helps reduce unstable cutting conditions and enables higher penetration rates

The drill’s “X”-shaped pocket, and tapered seat provide stability in challenging applications while making it easy to change out the insert without disassembling the body from the holder. These key design features reduce unstable cutting conditions experienced with other drills commonly available in the market today, while enabling higher penetration rates and reducing overall machine set up times and costs.

All three inserts can be reground to extend the life of the tool. TDMX is available in both imperial and metric sizes in 1.5xD, 3xD, 5xD, 8xD, 12xD and diameter ranges 16 to 40 mm. Orders for the TDMX and MS geometry insert as well as other WIDIA metal cutting tooling can be placed through WIDIA authorized distribution partners.
