Chicago, IL- Allied Machine & Engineering, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems will display their newest GEN3SYS XT Pro high-penetration insert designed specifically for structural steel applications at FABTECH in booth #A3491, November 11th – 14th, 2019. With a proprietary blend of substrate and multilayer AM420 coating, the insert is composed to withstand the extreme heat produced while drilling in structural steel beams or plates in high production facilities. Allied’s XT Pro structural steel insert is designed to run most effectively in our GEN3SYS XT structural steel holders, improving chip formation while reducing vibrations to create a higher quality hole.
 
While Allied’s entire XT Pro product line thrives in high-penetration drilling applications, this unique combination of carbide grade, geometry and high-temperature coating is designed to run at or beyond current O.E.M. rates in structural steel applications.  The insert’s simplified setup and extended tool life reduces changeover and increases throughput. Their upgraded carbide insert has been completely redesigned to improve throughput and cut operational costs by extending life and increasing penetration rates. To preview the GEN3SYS XT Pro structural steel insert in action, watch this brief demo here.
