A leading provider of metal cutting solutions for milling, turning, hole making and tool holding, Seco recently introduced the company’s new CX1 and CX2 polycrystalline diamond (PCD) drills for composite hole making. The new diamond-tip technology eliminates issues with uncut fibers or delamination in composite machining, and has allowed the company to successfully develop the industry’s first PCD three-flute geometry (CX1) for composite drilling.
Designed to offer the sharpest and strongest cutting edges currently available, the new CX1 and CX2 PCD drills use solid PCD tips. These tips can be much sharper than PCD coated drills as the coating, when applied, wraps around the cutting edge and creates a dulling effect. Additional benefits of the new solid PCD tipped drills include high cutting speeds, long tool life, low friction, superior thermal conductivity, multiple re-sharpening capacity and high process reliability.
