A contract machine shop maintains and repairs equipment for chemical plants and oil fields. The part being machined is a wire line component for offshore drilling made of Monel alloy. They are using an M5 Mazak CNC with semi-synthetic coolant to produce their products.

Tool used: Precision twist solid cobalt drill
  • Hole diameter = 0.750″
  • Hole depth = 3.4″
  • 250 RPM
  • 0.004 IPR
  • Tool life = 4 holes per regrind
  • Cycle time = 3.9 minutes
  • Cost per hole = $22.02
The customer needed to reduce the cycle time and increase their overall production.
The Solution
Allied recommended the Original T-A drill.

Tool used: T-A® drill insert (item 151A-0024) with a holder (item 23010S-100F)

  • Hole depth =  3.4″
  • 300 RPM
  • 0.004 IPR
  • Cycle time = 3.33 minutes
  • Cost per hole = $11.99
The Advantages
The Original T-A successfully reduced cycle time and lowered the customer's cost-per-hole.
  • Total cost savings = $2,507 or 45.54%
