Allied Machine Offers Polycrystalline Diamond Insert for T-A® Drill

PCD insert makes clean holes with minimal delamination in CFRP throughout long tool life

Dover, OH - Allied Machine & Engineering, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems, highlights the availability of its Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) T-A Drill inserts, designed for drilling in carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP), used in lightweight aircraft wings and fuselages, and other highly abrasive substances. The PCD inserts deliver drastically improved tool life and value over competing products.

The T-A Drill series features a replaceable tip design, allowing users to replace only the tip of the tool when it has worn out, unlike competing products that require the entire tool to be removed and replaced. This saves costs for users in the long run, reducing the cost of replacement tools.
Allied Machine's PCD T-A Drill inserts feature the standard T-A Drill insert with PCD wafers installed at the insert's cutting edge. Developed to meet the needs of a major American aircraft manufacturer when the company began using CFRP for wings and fuselages nearly a decade ago, the PCD T-A inserts are industry-proven to lead the market in reliability and cutting efficiency.
The highly productive, cost-effective PCD inserts can withstand strong and highly abrasive materials like CFRP-Titanium stacks, aluminum, titanium, copper, magnesium, fiberglass, and chipboard, which are frequently used in the aerospace and automotive industries. High speed steel and carbide drill inserts are unable to approach the efficacy, productivity, and overall value of Allied's PCD inserts when drilling in such difficult materials.
