SOMTA Colour Band Application range of drills and taps is specially designed to optimize your machining performances. Each range has been designed with different cutting geometries and surface treatments to ensure optimum tool performance for each specific material category.
This outstanding development increases drill cutting efficiency by means of greatly improved chip control. A chipbreaker rib is positioned along the length of the flutes, which curls and breaks long chip forming material into small manageable chips for easier evacuation. There is no clogging of chips in the flutes, as small chips flow freely along the flutes. The chipbreaker drill thus cuts more freely than standard drills.
Established in 1954, Somta offers a range of high quality standard reamer products and custom reaming solutions. From closest tolerance precision machining of extremely accurate holes through to enlargement, alignment and deburring of holes for construction, assembly and general purpose applications. We have a product or a solution to satisfy your specific engineering requirements.
Somta’s high efficiency carbide end mill range with optimal flute geometry provides all the required features for high performance machining of aluminium, with the added benefits of greater stock removal rates at high speeds and feeds, excellent surface finish quality and extended tool life.
A range of high performance finishing end mills for operation on hard materials up to 52HRC (512HB), plus Somta’s hi-feed end mill with patent pending geometry that removes the most amount of material in the least amount of time combined with extended tool life, for use on hard and super hard steels up to 65HRC (880HV).
A range of high performance roughing end mills for rapid stock removal, with new geometry designed for very low cutting forces. These new roughers are for general engineering applications such as side cutting, slotting and ramping – and can be used on machines with medium to low rigidity.
Somta’s Solid Carbide Tooling Standard Range is a comprehensive family of solid carbide stub and jobber length drills, 2 and 4 flute end mills and ball nose end mills, in both regular and long series.
Somta’s new “Vari-Style” End Mill, VariCut has a new patent pending tool design. This unique design uses a new core form and a new reinforced end geometry with unequal flute spacing which enables it to remove the most amount of material in the least amount of time with an excellent surface finish. On Stainless, or Titanium, it will match or outperform any other “Vari-Style” End Mill in the market.
A comprehensive range of heavy duty drills designed with improved point and flute geometries for enhanced penetration and chip removal in long chip forming, short chip forming and abrasive material groups. This range of drills is specifically designed to meet the challenges of a broad spectrum of difficult drilling applications.
