Application and machining of composite materials

The concept of low carbon and the energy crisis have prompted countries worldwide to seek efficient and energy-efficient manufacturing technologies. The characteristics of low density and high strength of composite materials, in line with the requirements of energy saving and high efficiency, make it more and more favored by all walks of life and are rapidly being applied in aerospace, wind power blades, medical, automotive, and military. On the newer aircraft, the Boeing 787, composite materials account for more than 50% of the proportion, and metal materials with far higher density than composite materials are almost difficult to see.
The composite material is wear-resistant and has high hardness, and the ordinary carbide tool wears out very quickly during machining. Almost every composite material requires a unique tool design and machining method. Obtaining a more suitable cutting tool has become the key to the success of composite processing.
