Sandvik Coromant Launches Next Generation CoroDrill 860 for ISO P Material

Drilling steel just got faster and more efficient

Published: Wednesday, March 23, 2022 - 12:00

(Sandvik Coromant: Sandviken, Sweden) -- Global leader in metal cutting, Sandvik Coromant, has launched an upgraded CoroDrill 860 assortment to offer customers improved productivity in drilling steel. The advanced -PM geometry offers high-performance drilling in ISO P steels while significantly improving tool life.

The drill features a new grade with an improved multilayer physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating. The results are enhanced wear resistance, better tool life, and an overall increase in productivity and, thereby, reduced cost-per-component.

The drill is perfectly suited to applications in the automotive, general engineering, die-and-mold, and power-generation industries.

CoroDrill 860 with -PM geometry is available in standard stocked diameters from 3mm (0.12 inch) to 16mm (0.63 inch). Tailor-made tools are also available to customize the drill to match specific users’ machining requirements. Quotations and order placements can be made by visiting Sandvik Coromant’s Tailor Made page. The CoroDrill 860-PM is suitable for the company's reconditioning program. And, following end of life, the tool can enter a recycling program.

“We are always upgrading our offer and understand that improved productivity, along with achieving lower cost per component, are two of our customers’ major requirements," says James Thorpe, global product manager at Sandvik Coromant. "The introduction of this next generation solid carbide drill with an improved PVD coating will enable customers to improve process security, productivity, quality, and cost.”
