The latest addition to the comprehensive drill range from M.A. Ford Europe is the new high-performance Cyclone CXD. The drill has been developed to deliver high metal removal and penetration rates in the machining of high-temperature alloys, stainless steels and titanium. Designed for high-performance drilling in a broad range of materials, the combination of new low-thrust point geometry and the company's latest generation of Altima Plus coating is said to make them particularly suitable for use with difficult-to-machine metals. These are listed as including titanium, stainless steels, Inconel, Hastelloy, and other super-alloys. Covering diameters from 3.0 mm to 20 mm, the tools are available in five different variants, including through coolant or solid options to meet a variety of machining demands. Alternative flute lengths of 3x and 5x diameter are available across the range, while an extended 8x diameter length is offered on the CXDCL model.
