Guhring Raises the Standard with New Drilling Line
Renowned for its expertise in drilling and threading, the Guhring stand at MACH 2020 will be the place to visit for all your drilling and holemaking requirements. At the Birmingham NEC from the 20th to 24th April in Hall 17 on Stand 400, Guhring will be introducing its ground-breaking new RT100XF alongside a host of additional holemaking innovations that will include the HT800 indexable head drills, the EB80 gun drills and the HR500 reaming lines.
Taking centre stage amongst Guhring’s extensive holemaking portfolio at MACH will be the new RT100XF. Providing unbridled power and outstanding results guaranteed, the holemaking benchmark has been taken to a new plateau with the RT100XF.
Branded as ‘Extreme and Powerful’, the new RT100XF has been developed with all tool parameters optimised to generate outstanding feed rates and exceptional metal removal rates. Created to reduce cycle times for difficult-to-machine materials and special applications in series production, the extremely hard new drilling line is said to be extremely resilient to potential breakages.
This bold claim is based upon the new carbide grade developed by Guhring for the RT100XF that performs a balancing act between hardness and toughness. The special structure of this Guhring created carbide grade has a re-sharpening effect, so breakages that normally accelerate tool wear, no longer occur. This is supplemented by the proven nanoFire coating system that has been created by a specially designed pre- and post-treatment that smooths the coating and makes it significantly
The design and geometry of the new RT100XF supports the robust performance of the carbide grade and surface treatment with an early double margin support that perfects the coaxiality to ensure perfect bore size and roundness. This makes the RT100XF the drill of choice for precision, concentricity and performance for hole making from 5xD upwards. Furthermore, polished flutes reduce the heat transfer to the component, this also supports the fast evacuation of chips and thermal changes such as hardening are avoided. The new through coolant drills are perfect for the drilling of structural and case-hardened steels, free-cutting and heat-treated steels, nimonics, titanium, inconel and hastalloy, making the RT100XF the perfect complement for any machine shop. Available in 5XD and 7XD, the new drills can be purchased in diameters from 3mm to 20mm diameter with 0.1mm increments.
Alongside the new RT100XF at MACH will be the HT800 WP indexable insert drilling system. Developed for extreme process reliability, the HT800 WP range is available in diameters from 11 to 40mm with drilling depths of 1.5XD, 3XD, 5XD, 7XD and 10XD. Offering interchangeable inserts for steel, stainless, cast iron and aluminium alloys, the HT800 WP is the perfect all-rounder for all your drilling requirements. With a vast array of insert geometries and grades, drill body diameters and lengths, the HT800 WP will certainly attract attention at MACH.
For the longer, deeper and more challenging holemaking requirements, Guhring will be introducing its single fluted EB80 XXL gun drilling series at MACH 2020. Guhring has paid attention to the demands of the marketplace, expanding the existing range with four new drilling lengths that are also available with a hugely expanded diameter range.
The especially long, single-fluted gun drills with brazed carbide heads are now available in eight different lengths from 600mm to 2m. The EB80 XXL enables much faster processing times compared to conventional spiral deep-hole drills; this is credit to the polished flute that guarantees excellent chip control and the best possible protection against wear when drilling steel and non-ferrous metals. The TiN coating further extends service life and makes the EB80 XXL optimally suited for deep drilling machines and for use in mould and die applications.
Complementing the drilling lines at MACH will be the extended HR500 solid carbide universal reaming line. The impressive HPC reaming line operates at the highest possible cutting rates with the result being holes of the utmost in precision, concentricity and surface finishes. The HPC line is suitable for finishing holes on a vast array of materials that include a variety of steels, aluminium alloys, cast materials, plastics, magnesium alloys, copper, brass and much more. Despite being a world-leading brand in the field of drilling, Guhring will have so much more on offer at MACH.
