The Tritan Drill was presented as the problem-solver for diffi cult drilling situations in 2010. Since then the three-edge drill has been employed successfully and reliably in numerous applications where conventional drills reached their limits. MAPAL has now achieved a significant optimisation of the lead geometry.
Innovative lead geometry for very good chip removal and low cutting pressure
The Tritan-Drill has unique generous point thinnings machined into the chip space which discharge the chips with minimum friction into the chip fl utes. Cutting pressure and edge temperature are very low, and practically no build-up edges occur even during dry drilling of aluminium. The aggressive, self-centring chisel edge bites into the material on the fi rst contact with the workpiece and holds the drill reliably in position.
Ideal for through-drilling or on entry into cross bores
The Tritan-Drill demonstrates its strengths particularly in situations where other drills fail: While two-edge drills drift during through-boring and create a signifi cant burr, the Tritan Drill remains stable, the bore outlet sharp-edged and with minimum burr. The Tritan-Drill is perfectly suited also to precise positional drilling with large projection lengths. And best of all, the Tritan Drill achieves up to twice the feed rate.
