Allied Machine & Engineering, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems, introduces its Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) T-A Drill inserts, designed for drilling in carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP), used in lightweight aircraft wings and fuselages, and other highly abrasive substances.
Developed to meet the needs of a major American aircraft manufacturer when the company began using CFRP for wings and fuselages nearly a decade ago, the PCD T-A inserts are industry-proven to lead the market in reliability and cutting efficiency.
- Standard T-A Drill insert with PCD wafers installed at the insert’s cutting edge
- Replaceable tip design, allowing users to replace only the tip of the tool when it has worn out
- PCD inserts can withstand strong and highly abrasive materials like CFRP-Titanium stacks, aluminum, titanium, copper, magnesium, fiberglass, and chipboard, which are frequently used in the aerospace and automotive industries
