Vernon Hills, Illinois – YG-1 has added to its DREAM DRILLS lineup with the new DREAM DRILLS PRO line, which is optimized for machining in steel and cast iron, according to a company statement.
“The main advantage of this new DREAM DRILLS PRO line is high cutting speeds with longer tool life,” said Steve Pilger, product manager, holemaking. “Our engineers developed several advances that combine to make these tools faster, more efficient and longer lasting than other comparable tools tested.”
New DREAM DRILLS PRO tools are made with micrograin carbide for core strength and longer tool life. They also feature YG-1’s wave-shaped cutting edge to reduce cutting forces, and an advanced, wide-flute design optimized for faster, reliable chip evacuation. A self-centering 140° point angle reduces torque and extends tool life, according to the company.
YG-1’s Z-Coating (silicon-based, nano-layered) technology gives cutting edges high hardness and greater heat resistance for extended tool life. The resulting higher machining efficiency produces superior surface finishes and more parts per tool, according to the company. DREAM DRILLS PRO tools come in drilling depths of 3xD to 5xD.
DREAM DRILLS PRO is the latest line in the DREAM DRILLS product matrix from YG-1, including General Purpose, MQL, HIGH FEED, FLAT BOTTOM, ALU, HIGH HARDENED and INOX.
