MORTON GROVE, Ill – April 1, 2016 – Alfa Tools introduces Blitz Nitride Jobber Drills designed for high performance in heavy-duty production work as well as tough maintenance (MRO) applications. These extra heavy duty drills can tackle drilling applications in the widest range of materials including mild steel, stainless steel, titanium and nickel alloy steels, and non-ferrous materials. As with all Blitz products, these are proudly made in the U.S.A.
Blitz Nitride drills are made from premium M-7 Molybdenum High-Speed Steel with a special nitride treatment giving additional hardness to the cutting edge that lasts longer and outperforms cobalt tools. The black oxide and silver finish increases lubricity and reduces friction. The strong web construction provides greater strength and rigidity to get through hard-to-drill materials like stainless steel and titanium alloys.
“Heavy-duty drills are essential to production and the MRO professional,” said Shaan Ahluwalia, vice president of Sales and Marketing, Alfa Tools. “Our Blitz Nitride Jobber drills are resistant to wear, which ultimately means the end user gets the lowest cost per hole drilled.”
The split point and flute geometry make the Blitz Nitride drills cut cleanly and accurately with less effort reducing user fatigue. These drill bits are also designed to withstand a higher degree of heat at higher speeds, which reduces friction and enables balanced cutting action with closer hole tolerances. The precision ground 135° split point is self-centering and reduces thrust for more efficient drilling.
