1. Drilling

Cutting tool life is usually extremely short because of the high strength of carbon fibre, additionally delamination and burring easily occurs during cutting, thus it is effective to use a tool that applies coating with high wear resistance.

The MCS drills and the S-TAW drills (non-stocked insert) reduce burrs and delamination due to a CVD diamond coating technology in combination with an optimized tool geometry, thereby achieving a long tool life and high-quality machining.

The PCD drills (non-stocked item) reduce burrs and delamination due to PCD (sintered diamond) technology in combination with an optimized tool geometry, thereby achieving a long tool life and high-quality machining.

1. Face Milling, Pocket Milling

Milling of rib type components involves removing large volume over 90 %. Thus, high efficient machining at high speed is required to reduce cost.
The AXD series achieves low cutting resistance without lowering the insert edge strength due to a helical flank and optimized of the relief angle.
Additionally, the convex cutting edge allows good chip removal, resulting in high speed and high efficiency machining.

Use of MP9120 grade is highly effective in super-high-speed cutting.

The ALIMASTER series achieves good chip removal due to the unique crosssectional shape of the flute geometry shape. This enables high speed and high efficiency machining.

The head of exchangeable head end mills iMX for machining of aluminium alloy prevents welding due to the large rake angle and the mirror treatment for improved efficiency.

1. Side Milling, Rough Pocket Milling

When rough machining titanium alloy, chipping and abnormal damage of the cutting edge easily occurs if low rigidity tools are used. Using high rigidity tools and low cutting resistance inserts are recommended. Stable machining is possible because the VFX series has a high rigidity design and cutting resistance is lower due to the convex curve cutting edge and the V-formation of the clamping face.
