TTP announces distribution opportunities 01 August 2022

Established in 2015 TTP HARD drills boasts a global customer base of satisfied end user customers. Now, the company is looking for suitable distributors for the TTP HARD range of Cobalt metal drill bits and metal cutting paste.

With distribution centres in both Lancashire, UK and Michigan, North America TTP HARD drills says it is well placed to deliver high-quality products globally. The company commissioned international testing houses to test both the drill bits and metal cutting paste to ensure their quality. SGS MIS Testing used the ‘Vickers’ testing method to determine the exact hardness rating of the drill bits. A diamond was used to indent the drill bit in three locations in order to determine its hardness rating. A Rockwell hardness of 66 was recorded. A video of the test and the resulting certificate can be viewed online. 

The extreme pressure properties of CUT-IT metal cutting paste was also tested by Subsea Fluid Services. During the 30 minute test up to 1,300lbs of pressure was imposed on metal turning against metal with only CUT-IT paste as a lubricant. The result was that the paste lubricated well. A video of the test and the certificate are available online.

TTP HARD drills is passionate about providing as much information to customers as possible. The company does this through its websites which are continually being updated with top tips on drilling various metals. Speed charts, videos and top tips are available to ensure customers have all the information required to drilling metal as easy as possible, helping them make less mistakes when drilling.
