TungSix-Drill – Connecting Rod – AH9030


- TungSix-Drill allows 1.3 times higher feed rate than the competitor, even when drilling into the concavity of forged part due to the tough cutting edges.

- AH9030 provides long tool life even when machining with external coolant supply because of the high oxidation resistance of coating layer. - While competitor’s tool requires two kinds of inserts in one body, TungSix-Drill needs only ONE shape of insert. This simplifies inventory control.
