Tips For Machining Deep Holes In Cemented Carbide Drill Bit

             More and more machining workshop is replacing the deep hole with the whole cemented carbide bit. Some monolithic carbide bit manufacturers believe that the performance advantages of such drills are increasingly appealing to manufacturers who use guns to drill deep holes in their own lathes or subcontract deep hole processing tasks to gun drill workshops. However, the monolithic cemented carbide deep hole bit has some limitations compared with the gun drill, which is usually made of cemented carbide or hardened high speed steel, hardened blade and straight groove. For example, their drilling depth limit (dimensioning) is 40 times times the size of the hole, and the gun drill can easily drill deep holes up to 50 times times the aperture.Carbide Drill Bit

            The manufacture of the Zhuzhou Jinfong Alloy Co., Ltd., which is both a gun drill and a solid carbide drill bit The product manager pointed out that the gun drill can be drilled to process a variety of difficult materials, "because the gun drilling processing speed is slow, so it is easier to chip." When drilling titanium and stainless steel, the chip is a big problem, and gun drilling in the processing of refractory materials has a better versatility. In these processes, the gun drill is still heavily used. ‚ÄĚCarbide Drill Bit

             Another obstacle to the use of cemented carbide deep hole drills is that the processors are concerned about their brittleness and the potential danger of breakage. For example, one manufacturer is concerned about a solid carbide bit with a diameter of 6.35mm. Is it possible to drill a 240mm deep hole on a very difficult alloy material such as nitronic 50 nitrogen-fortified austenitic stainless steel in less than 4 minutes, and the drill bit remains intact (as claimed by a jinfong alloy tool salesman). The factory owner first put a standard length cemented carbide bit on the lathe, drilled a twice-fold aperture depth (about 13mm) of the guide hole, and then turned to use the Zhuzhou Jinfong alloy company's RT 100T internal cooling monolithic carbide drill bit (diameter 6.35mm, length of 30 times times diameter) for drilling. "I've compiled a M00 code after I use it," he said. Then the high-pressure nozzle of the lathe cooling system is used to provide the high-pressure coolant of 2000psi, 3.5gpm. Because of high pressure cooling, a sealed sleeve clamp is selected to hold the bit. When the drill is drilled into the hole, the high-pressure cooling nozzle is opened. The cutting parameters are: circumference cutting speed 42m/min (140SFM), spindle speed 2140r/min, feed rate 0.089mm/r. The processing time for drilling each hole (including the Drill Guide hole) is approximately 3.5 minutes. A total of 65 holes were machined before the drill must be tialn and coated.Carbide Drill Bit
