The Challenge
A machine shop uses screw and rotary transfer machines to produce valves and pressure connectors for the automotive industry.

Tool used: Iscar carbide drill (8.8 mm)
  • 2036 RPM
  • 0.006 IPR
  • 12.21 IPM
  • Cycle time = 3 minutes 4 seconds
  • Tool life = 11,000 holes
The customer needs to maximize the capabilities of a new machine to increase production, which will open the door to additional orders from their largest customer.
The Solution
Allied recommended the ASC 320 solid carbide drill.

Tool used: ASC 320 drill (3.5xD) (item 335M8800A21M)
  • 3300 RPM
  • 0.008 IPR
  • 26.4 IPM
  • Cycle time = 1 minute 50 seconds
  • Tool life = 21,000 holes
The Advantages
The ASC 320 reduced cycle time and increased tool life. Ultimately, the customer purchased an additional hydromat machine for the increased orders they received.
  • Decreased cycle time by 40%
  • Increased tool life by 90.9%
  • Annual cost-per-hole savings = $11,932.12
