What Are Solid Carbide Drills Used For?

Drilling is probably the most widely recognised hole making process. It involves using a drill bit rotated at incredibly high speeds to cut through a hole in a workpiece.

Manufacturers and machine shops use a range of hole making tools, depending on the required operation. Solid carbide is the hardest of the drill bit materials, so solid carbide drills are designed to tackle only the most demanding and toughest materials.

Solid carbide drills are primarily used for production drilling where a high-quality tool holder and drill bit are necessary. The benefits of using solid carbide drills are that they increase speeds and feeds, are hardwearing, and have an extended tool life.
