Fresh design improves process times and reduces noise, burrs, and scrap.

Dover, OH – Allied Machine & Engineering, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems, announces the release of their newest GEN3SYS XT Pro high penetration insert designed specifically for beam and plate production in the structural steel market. With an exclusive combination of substrate and multilayer coating, the insert is engineered to withstand heat generated while drilling in structural steel beams or plates in high production facilities. Optimized in their existing structural steel holders, Allied’s high-tech structural steel insert improves chip formation and reduces vibrations creating a higher quality hole.

The unique composition of carbide grade, geometry and high temp coating are designed to run at or beyond current O.E.M. rates while offering extended tool life.  The insert’s simplified set up and extended tool life reduces changeover and increases throughput. “During beta testing customers reported significant reduction in noise as well as less signs of heat.” Explains Andrew Pisorn, product manager for Allied’s GEN3SYS XT Pro product line. “We’ve optimized the design of this particular insert to give machine shops and manufacturers a competitive advantage in structural steel holemaking. From better run rates and less tool failures, the stability of this insert provides increased capacity and most importantly increased profit for the customer.”
