The Challenge
Good Things Come to Those Who Don’t Wait.

Don’t be held back by the waiting game. Our customer who machines pump cylinders was previously having to wait on 35-to-40-day lead times.

Needing better lead times and lower costs per hole, the customer tested Allied’s GEN3SYS XT Pro drill. Using the “K” ISO-specific cast iron insert geometry—developed with a corner radius for improved hole finish and heat dispersion—they were able to maintain speed while increasing penetration rate and tool life.

On top of the increased tool life, the GEN3SYS XT Pro had a decreased cycle time lowering the cost per hole by 18%. The success of the XT Pro in this application is just another example of why you should go with the pro. Don’t wait;it’s always the right time to give us a call and let us help you find the right solution.
