Tapered Hole

The tapered hole machining process demands a strong edge line to hold up uneven surfaces at entry and exit points, as well as a sharp primary land for difficult-to-cut materials, such as titanium (Ti) or heat-resistant super alloys (HRSA). DIAEDGE Cutting Tools' high-quality, well-designed products are an ideal solution to meet these machining needs for a perfectly precise part every time.

Application
Drilling

The DIAEDGE DSA CNC drill is specially designed for drilling titanium (Ti) alloys for orthopedic tapered holes in hip replacement components. The innovated TRI-Cooling Technology® coolant hole geometry combined with the specially designed thin margin minimizes contact area with hole surface and overcomes heat buildup at the cutting edge by reducing cutting heat and preventing the generation of work-hardening in titanium (Ti).

Application
Milling

Intricate machining in hard-to-machine materials, such as heat-resistant and titanium (Ti) alloys as well as medical-grade stainless steel (SS), causes difficulty when machining hip replacement components with tapered hole applications — varying depths of cut produces vibrations. VQ has irregular flute helix design, which reduces vibrations, plus a corner radius for edge line security to extend tool life.
