Sandvik Coromant, world leader in tools and cutting solutions, has introduced the latest drill in the CoroDrill® 860 series. The high-performance tool with advanced -GM geometry enables the machining of a wide range of materials and components as well as significantly improved tool life.

The new CoroDrill 860 with -GM geometry is based on a new grade, an innovative chip channel design and a drill tip with PVD multiple coating. All this leads to improved drilling processes in many materials and different applications as well as a significantly longer tool life.

“As Sandvik Coromant, we focus on two of our customers’ most important requirements – extending tool life and improving productivity. The newly developed CoroDrill 860 with -GM geometry is suitable for applications where hole quality is critical, including the automotive, general engineering and oil and gas industries,” says James Thorpe, Global Product Manager at Sandvik Coromant.

As a high-performance solution for short hole drilling, the CoroDrill 860 excels in steel, stainless steel, cast iron and hardened materials. But the tool also performs excellently when machining non-ferrous metals such as copper and aluminum as well as heat-resistant superalloys. Thanks to the special -GM geometry with optimized double bevel, the new CoroDrill 860 scores with increased stability and core strength as well as corner reinforcement. Its polished chip channels ensure improved chip evacuation and reduced heat generation during machining. As a result, users benefit from reliable processes and high bore quality.

“Our goal was to provide our customers with an improved solution for a wide range of industrial applications and thus optimize our product offering,” says Thorpe. “We achieved this with the innovative CoroDrill 860 with -GM geometry and its outstanding performance in a whole range of materials. This allows users to not only improve drilling quality, but also reduce tooling and overall production costs, while increasing machine flexibility and reducing set-up times.
