New Walter Drill is Xtreme


Walter has now launched its new X·treme Evo Plus drill from the DC180 Supreme product family that is now available up to 8XD for the first time. The drill with through coolant and four lands is distinguished by its extraordinarily impressive level of guidance in the drill hole.

This geometry consequently enables exceptional precision – even for greater drilling depths and interrupted cuts, which increases process reliability and tool life for the end user. The same applies to the polished flutes that optimise chip evacuation, particularly on materials like stainless materials. Furthermore, the straight-cutting edges offer an increased level of reliability and stability. The Krato·tec multi-layer coating technology that has especially been developed for drilling and reaming tools, achieves the highest cutting speeds and increases tool life by upward of 50% when compared to other products on the market. With the 8XD version, the AlTiN layer is designed as a tip coating in Walter’s own WJ30EY grade for the first time.

The DC180 Supreme drill can be used universally for a multitude of applications in all ISO materials from the P, M, K, N, S and H groups. In addition to the standard dimensions from 3 to 20mm diameter, Walter also offers the solid carbide drill as a special tool with intermediate dimensions and as a step drill.

With the Walter Xpress service, users also benefit from a reduced delivery time (max. three weeks). Due to its productivity and wear resistance, the DC180 Supreme can optimise the costs of complex ISO M and S machining operations in the long term. This is particularly the case in the aviation industry or with components for the automotive industry. The Krato·tec coating boasts additional advantages in terms of tool life and process reliability.
