Cutting tool and tooling solutions provider Sandvik Coromant will highlight a number of new product and business developments for the composite-machining market. Twelve months ago, Precorp and Sandvik Coromant established a partnership to jointly provide innovative solutions for composite machining applications. Together, they offer an extensive range of polycrystallinediamond (PCD) and cementedcarbide tooling for cutting and machining advanced composites and other materials commonly used in the aerospace sector. These include unique products that utilize PCD vein technology – essentially a precisionsintered insert of PCD on a tool’s cutting edge that helps maximize quality and efficiency. Working together with machine tool builders and providers of other ancillary products, Sandvik Coromant and Precorp can help manufacturers devise specially tailored processes for exceptionally challenging applications. In hole-making, for instance, the aim is to consistently produce high-quality holes and surfaces at high productivity. Among the brand new products to be highlighted at the show is CoroDrill® 452 for close tolerance hole-making in composites. Specifically optimized for carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) and metallic stack materials, this ground-breaking tool offers customers a host of benefits. CoroDrill 452 is suitable for use in fixed-bed, portable and hand-held machine applications. www.sandvik.coromant.com

Airtech, the innovators in vacuum bagging and composites

A new technology has been developed to manufacture composite tools with a hard metallic surface. This innovation combines the light weight, low thermal mass and low cost benefits of carbon fibre composite tooling with the hardness, durability and damage tolerance of metallic mould tools. The metallic surface is an ultra-hard, nanocrystalline nickel/iron alloy coating with a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) that matches the CTE of the composite tool. This coating is applied onto a carbon-fibre composite mould tool using a novel process. The successful development of this metal/composite hybrid mould technology is the result of a five-year collaboration between The Advanced Composites Group Ltd. and Integran Technologies Inc. The Advanced Composites Group Ltd. has over 30 years’ experience of developing and manufacturing composite tooling technologies. Integran Technologies Inc. are the world leaders in nanostructured metals with over 100 granted patents, including one of the first nanotechnology patents ever granted. With this innovation, a mould tool that combines all the advantages of a composite tool while having the surface hardness and durability of a metallic surface can be manufactured. This increases the longevity of the carbon-fibre composite mould to a level comparable to conventional metallic mould tools, while retaining the performance benefits of a carbon-fibre composite mould.

Airtech Advanced Materials Group, which includes Airtech International in the USA, Airtech Europe in Luxembourg, Tygavac Advanced Materials in England and Airtech Asia in China, continues to develop the innovative products and services on show at JEC 2011. Airtech delivers on its commitment to customers to reduce touch labour costs (i.e. direct labour) significantly with the new, huge CNC ply-cutting machine in Airtech Europe. With a 216-m² cutting bed, the machine enables Airtech to custom cut & kit products to fit perfectly over composite parts on the mould tool. This will significantly reduce moulding cycle times and improve part quality. The new Beta prepreg for composite tooling is based on 21st century benzoxazine resin and toughening technology. It can be stored at room temperature for up to 6 months with no loss of tack and delivers superior laminate properties compared to conventional epoxy and BMI systems. High glass transition temperature (218°C) and service stability at high temperature ensures long tool life. Also new from Airtech is the TB G48, a cost-effective, high-temperature carbon-fibre tooling board for mould support, jigs and fixtures that reduces tooling cost and improves performance. Securlon L750 vacuum-bag film and WL3700 P16 release film are new inexpensive products for application sectors like wind energy and marine, where good performance is needed at lower cost.
