Speed and Feed Recommendations for CFRP Machining

Processing composite materials differs significantly from processing metals, and the methods vary greatly depending on the type of composite material. Moreover, there are far more types of composite materials than metals. Therefore, processing composites requires a reassessment of machining methods, cutting tools, and even machinery and fixtures. In fact, each batch of composite materials that arrives at the factory necessitates corresponding new machining schemes.

In addition to selecting the correct cutting tools, choosing appropriate machining parameters when processing composite materials can maximize material layering, minimize delamination, reduce splintering and frayings, and enhance tool life.

Below are the cutting parameters we recommend for processing different composite materials (click to download pdf)
