SolidDrill (DSW, DSM)


Coated solid carbide drill for excellent stability

Ideal combination of drill geometry and carbide composition for exceptional performance on a wide range of drilling applications

Applications & Features

DrillingSmall-diameter drillingCoolant hole

1. New coated grade with highly improved wear resistance

• New coated carbide grade with a high level of versatility. Perfect grade for stable and long tool life on a wide range of materials.

2. Innovative cutting edge offers reliable drilling

• Non-conventional edge shape reduces cutting forces and improves adhesion strength of the coating to prevent sudden edge breakage.

3. World-wide standard shank style – Standardized with DIN6535-Form HA

• Only 6 shank size diameters available – ø6, ø8, ø10, ø12, ø14, ø16 mm. This reduces the number of collets required.

1. Variety of dimensions and L/D

• Allows deep hole drilling up to 5 to 15 times the drill diameter.
• Available as standard items from ø0.1 to ø3.0 mm in 0.01 mm increments. Shank diameters are all unified to ø3 mm.

2. Center drills for machining guide hole

• DSM-CP140 type has a 140° point angle which can effectively prevent the cutting edge from chipping.
• DSM-CP90 type, which has a 90° point angle, can be also used for chamfering of the hole mouth.
