PCD end mills: the ultimate choice for unlocking GRP material processing

29 December 2023

Carbide tool

GRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic) is a lightweight, insulating, corrosion-resistant, easy-to-form, high-temperature-resistant, low-expansion, recyclable, and wear-resistant composite material that is widely used in construction, ships, automobiles, wind energy, chemical industry, Widely used in electric power, medical, sports, and other fields.
However, its special properties also bring problems such as wear, adhesion, and vibration of carbide tools during processing.
Challenges and limitations of GRP materials
1. Wear problem
    The glass fiber in GRP has high hardness, which can easily cause the carbide tool to wear and shorten its service life. Cemented Carbide Tools may seem inadequate at this time.
2. Adhesion problem
    The resin part in GRP easily adheres to the tool surface during high-temperature cutting, affecting cutting efficiency and even clogging the tool.
3. Vibration problem
    Vibration causes damage to the tool edge, affects the quality of the machined surface, and increases the difficulty of processing.
PCD end mills are the pinnacle choice for GRP material processing
In this context, PCD end mills provide customers with efficient, stable, and high-quality GRP material processing solutions.
Outstanding advantages of PCD milling cutters
1. High hardness and cutting performance
    PCD end mill has excellent cutting performance and can easily face the high hardness of GRP material.
2. Strong wear resistance and stable life
    Even in high-speed cutting and large-volume cutting situations, the life of PCD tools remains stable. In the long term, this will result in significant cost reductions.
3. Good thermal conductivity
    Rapid heat dissipation, lowering the tool surface temperature, reducing thermal deformation during cutting, and ensuring processing stability.
4. High-precision cutting, superior surface quality
    PCD cutting tools can achieve high-precision cutting, improve the quality of machined surfaces, and meet the requirements for fine machining.
5. Reduce costs
    Long-lasting, efficient cutting results in longer life, which reduces costs.

pcd and pcbn cutting toolsCustomer Case: Successful Application in Pakistan's Construction and Building Materials Industry
A customer from Pakistan was dissatisfied with the surface quality of carbide end mills during processing and looked for a solution using PCD end mills.
The customer provided videos of previously used tools and machined workpieces, showing the actual situation of the problem.
Milling cutter specifications and optimization
- Diameter: 8mm
- Blade length: >30mm (cutting GRP plate thickness is 30mm)
- Number of blades: 2/3
- Processing requirements: Finishing
According to customer needs, we professionally made suggestions to replace the carbide milling cutter with PCD end mill and drew detailed drawings. Considering the characteristics of PCD cutting tools, we recommend  a two-edged design to avoid breakage caused by vibration.
