DESIGN OF THE NEW TECHNOLOGICAL PROCEDURE OF PRODUCING GROOVE OF SPIRAL BITS
Center for Quality, Faculty of Engineering, University of Kragujevac, Serbia,
One of the most commonly used and at the same time the most complicated cutting tools in terms of body geometry is the spiral drill bit. In the process of their production, the key operation is the production of spiral grooves. Until now, the grooves on the drill bits have been mainly produced by milling, grinding, rolling and extrusion processes. All these procedures have their advantages and disadvantages as well. Based on the experimental measurements of the dimensions of the grooves of the drill bits produced by the rolling and grinding technology, the paper defines the basic parameters and a new technological procedure for the production of grooves of the drill bits has been designed. For the suggested technological procedure of making of grooves of the drill bits, the advantages and disadvantages of the conventional production of the grooves of the drill bits by rolling or grinding technology have been analysed.
