Quickgrind has been at the forefront of developing and manufacturing tools for the high productivity trimming, milling, routing, drilling and reaming of composite materials for many years.
Take our Dagger drills, used for producing accurate holes without delamination as they exit the hole. For even finer tolerance work we also offer our Dagger drill/ream.
Our R&D team will analyse your manufacturing method and produce cutting tools to reduce the effects of vibration, heat, material build up and tool wear. When approached by a well known aerospace manufacturer to improve the machining of glass epoxy board we looked at machine set up, stability of workpiece, spindle power and swarf extraction amongst other factors. Using the correct mix of carbide grade, cutting edge geometry, length of flute and reach, coating and by introducing our Amrita anti-vibration technology, the result was a cutting tool that reduced their cycle times by 40% and improved tool life by 60%.
