Machining Composite Materials with Diamond Cutting

Machining Composite Materials with Diamond Cutting Tools. Composite materials such as high-density fiberglass, Carbon Fiber and G10-FR4 are very abrasive materials. They also test the adhesion of the diamond film to the base carbide. Many of our competitors fail in these applications due to poor adhesion of the diamond film to the carbide.

How To Machine Composites: The Cutting Tool,

2008-08-14· Parts made of a composite material such as the carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) increasingly being used for aircraft components can be set up and run on the same machine tools as metal parts. The CFRP might even be machined with similar cutting tools as the metal parts, though this is less likely. As soon as the cutting edge hits the workpiece, however, machining composites is

If you ask anyone who has had the dubious pleasure of working with them, composite substrates are some of the most challenging materials to machine. It is not so much that the individual components (binders and fillers) are necessarily hard to machine, it is more that the cutting properties of the components are often so different that it is impossible to design a tool that will cut the
