The Plus 8 and Plus 9 series from the Cruing Group are billed as an innovative, better performing and more cost-effective range of drills aimed at advanced metalworking applications in, for example, steel, cast iron, hardened materials, and titanium. Their main constructive feature is the special steel body with brazed carbide cutting edge, with different coatings based on the specific use. The new drills with the steel body/carbide edge tandem are claimed to provide better cutting performance and very low cost per hole. Decisive in the view of the manufacturers is the steel body that grants high flexibility even in critical working conditions and low breakage risks. Especially the Plus9 series, which will be premiered at EMO Hannover 2017, is said to represent a completely new concept in drilling. The larger surface of the carbide cutting edge allows a broad range of cutting geometries, which can also be adapted to specific processing. Also stressed is the increased re-sharpening capability, the longer tool life and the optimized chip flow. The two series are available with HA cylindrical shank type, sizes from D:5 to D:20 mm, with a maximum length of 250 mm (up to 20xD), and with and without coolant holes.
