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.

Drilling tapered holes in medical-grade stainless steel (SS) can cause machining challenges with work-hardening, built-up edges, and delays in an already slow machining process. The DIAEDGE MMS Drilling Series is specially designed to improve machining performance with innovative TRI-Cooling Technology®, concave edges, and special margins to maximize tool life and chip evacuation for consistent quality and optimal machining processes.

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.
