I-Dream Drill High Performance System

Solid Carbide Insert Indexble Drilling System for High Performance Drilling up to 7xD – Reduce Cycle Times Today!

  • The YG-1 I-Dream Drill uses the same carbide substrate and geometry as the solid carbide Dream Drill range
  • For performance machining of holes from 12mm-32mm diameter
  • Available in different insert geometries for steel or stainless steel (inox geometry)
  • Considerable cost savings compared to larger diameter carbide drills.
  • Available in 3xD, 5xD and 8xD maximum drill depths
  • Self centering and high accuracy machining

The most common drill used in metal cutting for holes above 13mm diameter is a u-drill style system, where a drill takes 2 sintered indexable inserts which can be rotated when worn out.  Whilst the u-drill has benefits, it also has several issues that can be improved: tool life is low due to the inserts being made from sintered carbide, accuracy is generally poor, tool depths are limited to 4-5xD and performance is generally average compared to feed rates of carbide drills. Often, a second operation is required to finish the hole to size.

The YG-1 I-Dream Drill is designed to correct all the flaws of the u-drill.  The inserts is made from GROUND SOLID CARBIDE which gives immense tool life, it is self centering and highly accurate, it offers feed rates 2-3 times higher than a u-drill and is the first choice for production drilling operations.

The I-Dream Drill replicates the geometry of a solid carbide drill, but saves 70-80% of the cost as only the end needs replacing when worn out.  Buy online today or contact our technical team to find out how the I-Dream Drill can benefit you.
