KOMET® PCD Slot milling cutter for composite materials
Fibrous composites are inhomogeneous materials that are essentially an assembly of three components – fibres and matrices or binders. Typical fibres include carbon fibre (CFRP), glass fibre (GFRP) or aramid fibre (AFRP). With respect to their tensile strength, they are categorised into HT (high tenacity), UT (ultra high tenacity) and IM (intermediate modulus). Depending on the properties desired, the fibres differ in length, thickness and relative orientation (unidirectional, bidirectional, multidirectional).
In addition to KOMET® NCD-coated tools, this PCD slot milling cutter is fluted and specially designed for machining composite materials.
