    Kennametal has now introduced a new patented FBX drill for flat-bottom drilling of structural aerospace parts. The FBX drill delivers stability and higher metal removal rates when machining high-temperature alloys, stainless steel and other materials.

    Four effective cutting edges provide stability in challenging applications like chain hole drilling while large chip flutes ensure hassle-free chip evacuation. Supported by a series of exchangeable coolant nozzles to help eliminate heat build-up, the drill point is characterised by a centre insert with two effective cutting edges and chip splitters for maximum feed rates. The drill bodies are available in diameters of 60, 75, and 90mm, and come in a short and long version with lengths of 95 and 150mm respectively. This modular drill connects to Kennametal’s bolt taper flange (BTF) mount adapters, available in various spindle connection styles.

    The FBX is suited to drilling into solid, chain hole drilling and plunging in a variety of materials such as high-temperature alloys, stainless steel, steel and cast irons. It is equally as versatile and high performing in similar applications for the general engineering and power generation markets.
