EZ Drill Stainless Steel Plate

Sandmeyer Steel achieves improved machinability through a special ladle metallurgy of molten steel, enriched with a calcium treatment that controls the size, composition and distribution of oxide inclusions. These inclusions are key to the process - acting as lubricants that make it possible for you to significantly increase feed rates.

And E-Z Drill gives you the same yield, tensile, elongation, hardness, toughness and corrosion resistance you get from standard austenitic stainless steels.

THICKNESSES & GRADES
E-Z Drill is stocked in thicknesses of 3/8" (9.5 mm) to 6" (152.4 mm) and in types 304, 304H, 304L, 316 and 316L.

MATERIAL CERTIFICATIONS
E-Z Drill can be certified to ASTM, ASME and QQS-766 specifications.

INCREASED PERFORMANCE
If you're using carbide drilling tools for drilling, reaming or grooving holes, E-Z Drill makes it possible to increase feed rates by as much as 30% without increasing drill wear.

Hole Diameter Normal Rate E-Z Drill Rate
1/2" 2123 RPM - 16.9 IPM 3032 ROM - 24.2 IPM
3/4" 1400 RPM - 11.2 IPM 2000 RPM - 16.0 IPM
1" 1061 RPM - 8.5 IPM 1516 RPM - 12.1 IPM
1-1/4" 850 RPM - 6.8 IPM 1213 RPM - 9.7 IPM
1-1/2" 708 RPM - 5.6 IPM 1011 RPM - 8.0 IPM
Pur drilling operations were completed on 304 straight grade and 304 E-Z Drill material using 3/4" diameter carbide insert drills. The optimum performance came at 393 SFM. Drill inserts used in testing were manufactured by a leading producer of carbide inserts.
