NEXUS Drills (1650)

Performance Drills Designed for Stainless Steel


The Nexus drill line is a high performance drill line designed for high performace gummy materials, like stainless steel. Its high helix and refine X-thinning point geometry yield incredible sharpness, which make it the ideal solution for processing soft materials. Available in stub and jobber lengths and features OSG's proprietary WD1 drill coating technology, which permits faster speeds and longer tool life in stainless steel applications.


X-Thining Point Geometry

No center drills neeeded. Achieves high accuracy high shearing forces ideal in gummy materials.

HSS-Vanadium Substrate

Added heat resistance via 3% Vanadium content yields superior performance to standard High Speed Steel drills.

OSG's WD1 Nano Coating

Higher coating oxidation temp & hardness dramatically improve wear resistance
