The 30xD Feedmax SD230A expands Seco Tools’ existing line of solid-carbide drills.

Seco Tools recently introduced a new solid-carbide drill for deep-hole production. The Feedmax SD230A solid-carbide 30xD drill was developed for applications that are common in the production of parts for the automotive, oil-and-gas, mold-and-die, medical, and general engineering sectors. Compared to high-strength steel (HSS) or ordinary solid carbide drills, the Feedmax SD230A offers substantial improvements in terms of hole quality, productivity, and length and consistency of tool life, the developer indicated.

Seco Tools supplies metalcutting solutions for milling, turning, holemaking and toolholding, emphasizing close relationships with customers to understand and address their needs effectively.

The Feedmax SD230A is offered in diameters ranging from 4 through 10 mm as standard, with 3 mm available as semi-standard. A four-facet point geometry provides centering capability, with primary and secondary relief angles, and a point angle of 136°.

Also, the new tool features a low-friction, TiAIN + TiN coating for long, predictable tool life. Four land margins provide stability and maximize hole quality.

For the best setup stabilization, Seco Tool recommends that Feedmax SD230A drills should be used in conjunction with hydraulic chucks or Shrinkfit toolholders.

The Feedmax SD230A is designed to complement Seco Tool’s existing range of 16xD drills. Additionally, other ranges, such as 20xD and 25xD, will be available as custom designs.
