The “ i-Center ” is a trademark of Nine9,
the developer of the first indexable center drill.
Offering an indexable insert system for the 1st time, Nine9’s “
i-Center ” patented design provides the benefit of solid carbide
cutting parameters while delivering -
High Speed, High Feed
High Performance speed
and feed can be achieved
due to the specially ground
inser t and rigid holder
design. For example, for
drilling Ø3.15mm hole on
alloy steel, running at 6000
