Faster and More Efficient Drilling for Steel Parts

March 24, 2022
New solid carbide drill with an improved PVD coating offers enhanced wear resistance, better tool life, an overall increase in productivity – all contributing to reduce tooling costs per component.

SANDVIK COROMANT launched an upgraded CoroDrill 860 assortment to offer customers improved productivity in drilling steel. The advanced -PM geometry offers high-performance drilling in ISO P steels while significantly improving tool life.

According to the developer, the new drill is suited to applications in the automotive, general engineering, die and mold, and power generation industries.

The drill features a new grade, with an improved multi-layer physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating, and the results are enhanced wear resistance, better tool life, and an overall increase in productivity – and thereby reduced cost-per-component.

CoroDrill 860 with -PM geometry is available in standard stocked diameters from 3 to 16 mm (0.12 to 0.63 inch.) Tailor-made tools are available too, to customize the drill to match specific users’ machining requirements. 

The CoroDrill 860-PM is suitable for the Sandvik Coromant Reconditioning program. And, following end of life, the tool can enter the Sandvik Coromant Recycling program.

“We are always upgrading our offer and understand that improved productivity along with achieving lower cost per component are two of our customers’ major requirements,” commented James Thorpe, global product manager at Sandvik Coromant: “The introduction of this next-generation, solid carbide drill with an improved PVD coating will enable customers to improve process security, productivity, quality and cost.”
