The cross center tip eliminates all carbide cutting edges!
Production time is only 4-6 weeks. That’s up to 1/4 of the “normal” lead time.
Up to 3x faster than carbide.
Speeds and feeds result in shorter cycle times.
The hardest grade of solid wafer PCD manufactured – period.
Prevents premature breakdown of the drill point as compared to outboard tipped drills.
Skip the regrind process over 10x longer than you would have. <pause. reflect> Ahhh.
Less stopping and tool changing. That could even be 800,000 holes in some applications!
Lengthen your production cycles.
Over 10x stronger than the best maintained carbide comparison.
Better wear resistance versus standard grade PCD.
Improve your company’s efficiency: fewer tools sitting in inventory, fewer regrinds, fewer scraps.
Less premature failure with wear or breakdown at the chisel.
Significant cost savings per hole.
4-6 weeks delivery time, compared to the competitor’s 16-20 weeks.
We educate best practices to your team to ensure proper handling, eliminating user error.
Not all drills are created equally.
Save Yourself from the Constant Grind.
Make Every Hole Count.
Join the Leading Edge Movement.
Decades have been dedicated to the evolution of effective drills. Steel to carbide to PCD outboard tipped. Yet here we are. Engineers across all industries including automotive, aerospace and several metal fabricators of technology have identified the need for a better solution. Faster, longer, stronger and efficient. There has to be a better way.
To improve the process, you have to know it through and through. You have to acknowledge the frustrations of your global partners, yet question why we are all conditioned to accept regrind after regrind and the excessive machine down time and QA involved. This is the system we’ve all been used to- but it shouldn’t be this way. And thanks to our innovation in creating the EdgeX4, it doesn’t have to be.
That’s what the EdgeX4 innovators at West Ohio Tool Co. believe. They have been developing and making tooling solutions for more than 30 years.
Although this company has grown into a multi-million dollar success – they want to stop the daily regrind. Yes, that’s right. They want to keep your production moving forward and help you get it right the first time. That way everyone can focus on getting the important things done.
Through their ingenuity and vision for a new, better way to make tools last longer, stand stronger and work faster for their customers and industry, their one of a kind EdgeX4 drill solution has many competitors scratching their heads on how they created it. Well, we won’t divulge the epiphany of their process, but we can tell you it wasn’t born in a pricey vacuum chamber. However it’s stronger than if it had.
The EdgeX4 has been tested by manufacturing partners across the country. For diecast aluminum, the EdgeX4 is proving to last more than 10x longer than competitor drills without needing a regrind.
Are you ready to be on the cutting edge of what solid, PCD drilling can do for your production timelines? Give the West Ohio Tool Co. team a call and see what a difference their proprietary development of the strongest drill to date can do for you. Be the hero of your team.
Introduce the EdgeX4 solid PCD Cross-Center Tipped Drill to your engineers, and let them see for themselves the difference a faster, stronger, longer lasting, and more efficient drill can do for them.
