As already mentioned, the machining of plastics can also be carried out using conventional HSS drills. In this process, too, we make sure that in contact with a drill, the resulting chips are removed without any problems. If this aspect is not observed, the plastics may overheat too much, especially in deep drill holes on the bore wall, which would result in lubricating the drill. In contact with thin-walled plastic, we also recommend high cutting speeds and the use of a neutral rake angle for optimum machining. In this way, the drill does not hook into the plastics and tearing out or pulling up the plastics on the drill can be prevented.
