TC burrs - PLAST cut
Tungsten carbide burrs with the PLAST cut are particularly suitable for use on less hard glass and carbon-fibre-reinforced duroplastics (GRP and CRP with ≤ 40 % fibre content) and fibre-reinforced thermoplastics.
The cut (similar to PCD milling) minimizes delamination and fraying.
- Particularly suitable for GRP and CRP with ≤ 40 % fibre content.
- Minimizes delamination and fraying due to the special cut that is similar to PCD mills.
- Particularly suitable for use on machines and on robots.
- Very low cutting force.
- High feed rates.
- Reduced wear on the tool drive due to impact-free work without chatter marks, thanks to the high concentricity.
Materials that can be worked:
- Fibre-reinforced plastics (GRP/CRP) with a fibre content ≤ 40 %
- Contour milling
- Milling grooves and pockets (with FSTS)
- Drilling blind holes (with FSTS)
- Drilling with minimal burr formation (with STS)
- Milling out
- Cutting out holes
Matching tool drives:
- Flexible shaft drive
- Straight grinder
- Machine tools
Recommendations for use:
- The version with a drill cut (BS) is particularly suitable for machine and robot applications, while the version with a centre drill (ZBS) is used for manual applications. It allows secure drilling on almost all surface conditions.
- The versions with an end cut (two teeth, STS) and flat end cut (two teeth, FSTS) are suitable only for machine and robot applications.
- Select a burr diameter greater than the thickness of the material to be machined, to avoid impacts and chattering with the risk of damaging or breaking the tool.
- Increase the rotational speed if the tool tends to chatter.
- If necessary, reduce the rotational speed and contact pressure if melting occurs.
- If possible, use the tools on powerful drives with elastically mounted spindles to avoid vibration.
- For the cost-effective use of burrs, work with higher rotational/cutting speeds.
- Power recommendation for tool drives:
- Shank diameter of 3 mm: 75 to 300 watts
- Shank diameter of 6 mm: from 300 watts
- Please observe the rotational speed recommendations.
