Allied Machine & Engineering, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems, announces its new GEN3SYS® XT Pro line of high penetration drilling products. The product line features inserts and holders designed with three unique geometries, and introduces two advanced coatings. Combining specific geometries and coatings to create the optimal solution for different machining materials, this next level of the GEN3SYS® high penetration drilling product line delivers top results.
GEN3SYS XT Pro inserts have been designed specifically for ISO material classes, making tool selection easy. They are offered for steels (class P), cast irons (class K), and non-ferrous materials (class N). The drill inserts come in diameters ranging from 11 mm (.4331 inches) to 35 mm (1.378 inches), and are available in .1 mm (.004 inch) increments. The inserts designed specifically for steel and cast iron have new AM400 series coatings, which provides increased wear resistance and tool life. Inserts for non-ferrous materials are coated with titanium nitride (TiN).
Holders for the GEN3SYS XT Pro line are offered in depth-to-diameter ratios of 3xD, 5xD, 7xD, and a new 10xD. These newly designed holders feature an enhanced flute design that improves chip evacuation and an updated coolant configuration that increases flow and directs additional coolant to the cutting zone. The GEN3SYS XT Pro holders are available in both imperial and metric shank diameters.
