Bosch upgrades “Impact Tough” titanium drill bit tips (TI9IM)
By Renée Francoeur
October 27, 2016 – Bosch Tools says its “Impact Tough” titanium drill bits provide 2x the life versus standard impact drill bits and drill through everything from hardwood to heavy-gauge carbon steel.
These bits are specifically designed for use in high-torque impact drivers, Bosch notes, as they offer an upgraded tip designed with split points for “clean, no-skate” starts. In addition, the tips help reduce bit walking and eliminate the need for a centre punch, according to Bosch.
These products also include longer flutes, impact-rated shanks and a titanium-cooling shield (titanium nitrate coating) for lower friction, less heat and longer life.
