The T-A Pro is the culmination of years of application wins and losses.  We took a general purpose tool and made it the go-to for all applications, providing a wider range and better cost per hole than competitive high performance tools.  T-A Pro achieves phenomenal tool life at high penetration rates, especially in situations where the balance of chip formation at high penetration is critical.  The new coolant design allows the tool to consistently perform at speeds that are almost uncomfortably fast, the opposite of what you would typically think to run a spade drill at, while still being the trustworthy choice for short product or general purpose applications where tool costs need to be left low. 



In order to help you increase your productivity and lower your costs, Allied Machine is constantly looking forward to developing new innovations to provide the best solutions on the market.  The new T-A Pro, for example, was created to combine the reliability of the traditional T-A product with the high-speed performance of our other drilling solutions like the XT Pro.  Every application matters, and we wanted to provide a tool that would benefit as many applications as possible.




Allied Machine & Engineering is a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing cutting tool systems.  Allied devotes its advanced engineering and manufacturing capabilities to creating the widest selection of value-added tooling available to metal-cutting industries around the world.  Our tooling solutions deliver the lowest cost per hole in a wide range of drilling, reaming, burnishing, threading and boring applications.


As holemaking experts, we know how to drill holes the most effectively and efficiently.  Browse our wide selection, including replaceable tip space drills, IC drills, solid carbide tools, deep hole and large diameter solutions, and more. 

Allied knows there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to holemaking. To better accommodate the countless holes our customers drill, we developed multiple geometry options, with new geometries in development at all times. 

If you need more specific solutions, like tooling for structural steel applications or hydraulic porting operations, we have answers for those, too.  Our engineers can help find the right solution for your job. 



We pride ourselves not only on the product we manufacture, but also the technical and customer support we provide.  If you need assistance on an application, we have holemaking experts ready to help -- either from a phone call or on site, right at the spindle.
