ITC offers a new route for composite machining
Posted on 17 Nov 2021 and read 1175 times
For the machining of challenging materials such as glass-fibre composites and carbon-fibre composites, Industrial Tooling Corporation
(ITC) has now introduced the new 9001 series of multi-flute routers.
It has a multi-flute right-hand cutting design that efficiently removes material while reducing the potential for delamination. The innovative geometry also incorporates a plunge-cutting edge that enables customers to apply this new series for a multitude of applications.
Depending upon the materials being machined and the application, the 9001 Series is also available with a diamond coating to enhance tool life and performance.
Glass and carbon-fibre composite materials are inherently difficult to machine and the combination of the innovative multi-flute geometry and the diamond coating that is added to the solid carbide tools provides performance improvements that make it the new industry benchmark.
The 9001 Series is available in diameters of 3, 6, 8, 10 and 12mm with an overall length of 64, 75 and 100mm. To enhance the rigidity and performance, ITC has optimised the new routing tools with an overall length of cut that ranges from 20 to 40mm depending upon the diameter selected.
