Indexable Flat Drill
The PDZ indexable flat drill is engineered for stable flat bottom hole machining. In addition to flat surface processing, the PDZ can also accommodate a wide range of hole shapes, such as inclined surface, curved surface, counterboring, half-hole drilling, and more. Its excellent chip breaking ability enables trouble-free stable machining up to a hole depth of 2xD. The PDZ also supports internal turning, face turning and outer turning applications to enable tool consolidation on lathes.
Compatible with a wide range of applications including drilling, counterboring, inclined surface drilling, and more.
Flat bottom cutting edge configuration
High precision finishing on flute improves rigidity, chip ejection and reduces cutting force
Superior chip breaking capability during drilling, counterboring, and turning
Economical 4-corner insert design maximizes cost efficiency, with the same insert applicable to both center and peripheral cutting edge
→The peripheral insert is recommended for maximum durability!
