Bosch Impact Tough™ Titanium Drill Bits Deliver Long Life and Precise Drilling in Varied Materials – from Hardwood to Steel

Upgraded tip design ensures virtually no-skate start; titanium nitrate coating offers cool running

Mt. Prospect, Ill., July 26, 2016 – Bosch Impact Tough™ Titanium Drill Bits provide 2X life versus standard impact drill bits and drill through everything from hardwood to heavy-gauge carbon steel. Electricians, plumbers and HVAC pros will appreciate the tough construction of these bits, which are rated for heavy-gauge carbon steels, while also providing precision drilling in light-gauge metal and hardwood.

Impact Tough Titanium Bits are specifically designed for use in high-torque impact drivers. 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 center punch.

Bosch Impact Tough Titanium Bits include a titanium cooling shield (titanium nitrate coating) for lower friction, less heat and longer life. They are manufactured especially for drilling in tough materials, such as heavy-gauge and high-carbon steel, regular metal drilling and hardwood applications. The bits have impact-rated shanks for greater toughness in harsh environments.

“We built Bosch Impact Tough Titanium Bits for tough drilling in tough applications,” said Chris Moskaites, product manager, drilling accessories, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “The split point tip design and titanium nitrate coating indicate the quality of these bits compared to competitive options. On tough jobs when the work has to get done, users won’t regret buying Bosch Impact Tough Titanium Bits.”

Bosch Impact Tough Titanium Bits have longer flutes for the effective material removal, including metals. And the length allows for universal drilling applications. Laser marking clearly identifies diameter.
