Its extreme stiffness and high tensile strength together with significantly lower weighs compared to steel and aluminum. This offers great advantages for component parts in many industrial sectors such as Aerospace, Automotive, power generation etc.
In addition, the material is highly conductive whilst at the same time the thermal strain is nearly zero. These mechanical characteristics of the composite materials put high demands on the cutting tools.
ZCC Cutting Tools have developed special ranges of milling and drilling tools for CFRP and GRP.
