New tool series for the machining of CFRP and GFRP

JEC Europe 2015 - Neuhäuser extended its Composite Catalog by the new tool series FIBER CUT.

The Solid Carbide routers are specially designed for the machining of uni- and multi-directional layers as well as woven fabrics made out of CFRP (carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic) or GFRP (glass-fiber-reinforced plastic). Various milling operations in the highly abrasive carbon- and glass fiber materials are possible with the FIBER CUT. Neuhäuser developed the new tool series with a unique geometry to avoid fraying issues and delamination. An aggressive cutting edge geometry enables working under very high feed rates while still producing a clean cut. Especially machining in a conventional milling direction accomplishes an excellent surface finish. If plunging operations in the material are required, there is a center cutting version of the FIBER CUT available.

The aggressive geometry generates a minimal amount of cutting forces. Thereby the condition of the special ground surface reduces adhesion. This leads to an increased tool life of the FIBER CUT compared to competitive tools. In combination with the high feed rates that can be realized these features enable a significant boost in productivity for the machining of CFRP and GFRP.

So far Neuhäuser was focusing on tools for the machining of honeycombs, panels and foams. For particular applications there are always special solutions in development. With the FIBER CUT Neuhäuser now offers standard tools for the machining of CFRP and GFRP in the catalog
