A closeup view of the holemaking process shows the Ingersoll HiFeed Deka face mill producing chips partway through a complete hole The tool withstands the lateral and impact forces associated with corkscrew milling the developer noted and because it has twice the diameter of the previous solidcarbide end mill it is less susceptible to deflection and it leaves no slug
Productivity improvements in holemaking are based to a large extent on higher penetration rates With the CoroDrill 860 solid carbide drill this is achieved primarily by higher cuttingspeed capacity combined with the higher process security
