Presenting the ARTU Porcelain Plus Bit

August 14, 2016

Porcelain Plus for Hard Tiles - ARTU's PORC+ Bit - is specifically designed for rotary drilling through porcelain and ceramic tiles up to a scratch hardness of 8. Its durability and superior carbide tip distinguish the PORC+ from other standard bits advertised for these surfaces. Operators will find the PORC+ easier to use and more accurate to place than most other options out there. The diamond ground PORC+ will cut nice, clean holes with very little or no chipping in hard tile or glazed ceramics. It will also drill into the material the tile is mounted to without needing to change bits. Sizes available are 5/32", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8" and 1/2".

Meet the ARTU Multi-Purpose Drill Bit

Its special negative back grinding enables the tip to bore with a filing action, not a cutting one, and the cobalt and tungsten carbide tip won't chip and crack like regular carbide tips. The unique tip geometry allows the bit to self-center, which eliminates walking and makes a center punch unnecessary. In addition, the flat bottom parabolic flute allows for faster waste removal.
