Sandvik Coromant has announced that the new CoroDrill 860 will be available from March 2012. Optimised for steel drilling, the CoroDrill 860 delivers top-class performance across a range of operations, including conventional drilling, chamfered holes, inclined surfaces, cross holes, stack drilling and convex/concave surfaces. Using high cutting data in long and short chipping, the drill delivers superior chip evacuation control and consistently problem-free drilling.

New, unique geometry, combined with the new flute shape, provides a cutting edge shape designed for effective clearance of the chip, even at increased penetration rates. Significant improvements will also be appreciated when working with weak fixturing, thin walled components and cutting edge loads. The drill is offered in lengths 3-8xD as standard.
