R100 & R120
The R100 and R120 are jobber drills with a 4-facet point and cylindrical shank for universal use in combination with power tools, pillar drills and CNC machine tools. The drills are made from a K10 micro-grain solid carbide and are suited for general drilling operations in steel, cast iron and aluminium alloys. They are commonly used in applications where the FORCE X and FORCE M drills are not recommended, such as on conventional machines or small diameters <3.0mm.
The hardness of these drills gives the wear resistance that is needed for highly abrasive cutting conditions. This means they can also be used for hardened materials in conventional conditions, where high performance drills will fail because the set-up does not achieve the accuracy run out and feed control.
