It requires special demands to cutting materials, geometries as well as coatings in order to achieve effective and qualified processing of new or exotic materials such as CFRP, GRP, Honeycomb, Titanium and Aluminum.
Although the “exotic” materials have been used in the aerospace industry for a long period time, the application of these materials in the automotive industry such as CFRP or Titanium is only just beginning.
At the time of reducing the weight and optimizing the performance and efficiency, the maximum degree of strength and stability are kept, that is the main reason.
The process of chip removal is one of the biggest challenges about the application of advanced material. For example, the abrasion of CFRP and the poor conductivity for heat of Titanium (a long-chipping material). This causes the temperature of tool cutting edge to rise, which in turn leads to an aggravated tool wear and the decrease of tool life correspondingly.
We can provide specialized developed diamond coatings based on the application, because we possess expertise in processing of fiber-reinforced composite materials and understand our partner’s technology in the coatings branch.
HAM has been concentrated on solving methods of the advanced materials for efficient and economic end mill tool machining for many years. Today, we can supply and extensive program for solid carbide and PCD-tipped tools no matter in standard and special designs.
