The tried and tested XTRA.TEC drill product line B40xx exchangeable tip has been extended by indexable insert drills. The new XTRA.TEC insert drills are launched under the designation B4213 for drilling depths up to 3xD. Other types and lengths are being planned. Walter XtratecWhile exchangeable tip allow highest feed rates, the indexable insert series is characterized by low cutting materials costs (four cutting edges per insert) as well as an extended application range such as transversal spot-drilling, cross drilling or drilling on convex faces. In order to ensure a better differentiation between the two tools, the B40xx drills will be launched under the name XTRA.TEC point drills.

As with all its XTRA.TEC tools, WALTER has again made best use of their engineering expertise in developing this XTRA.TEC drill. The inner and outer inserts have a special design. The inner insert provides for centering, the outer one, equipped with wiper geometry, for maximum precision and good surface qualities. The helical tool shank ensures excellent chip flow.

For the various applications, universal Tiger.tec or PVDTiger.tec cutting materials are available, the latter especially for the processing of high alloyed stainless steels. Currently, the new XTRA.TEC insert drills are available in the diameter range 21 to 29 mm, but Walter is already planning to extend the range downwards step by step to 14 mm, as well as to enlarge the indexable insert product line.

The XTRA.TEC insert drill with special four-edged inner and outer inserts extends WALTERs XTRA.TEC product line.
