Easy Assembly

SMD assembly-DEX

1.) Confirm drill tip is compatible with drill body by checking
diameter range listed on shank.
2.) Place SMD replaceable carbide head on SMD drill body
so that the screw mounting holes line up.
3.) Insert assembly screws and tighten securely after screw
mounting holes are lined up.
Note: Mounting screws will only engage when the SMD
replaceable carbide head is in the correct position.

Cutting Conditions:

1. The recommended hole depth is 2 x drill diameter. The depth is measured from the highest point of the hole on drilling in inclined surfaces.
2. The recommended cutting conditions are those for drilling on flat horizontal surfaces.
3. Adjust the feed rate according to the inclination angle when drilling on an inclined surface.
4. Set the feed rate at 70% or lower when the inclination angle is 30° or less.
5. Set the feed rate at 50% or lower when the inclination angle is larger than 30°.
6. This product is a drilling tool. Do not use it for traversing or helical milling.
