The people that want to know know if I know about composites are using
UG NX5 so I'll assume it's not just 2D sheet metal processing and
programming. The only thing I'm not fimiliar with in the jog

I've ever cut that's composit is roulon-J (mix of teflon and brass)
and some disks that were about 1 inch thick by 3" O/D ) I don't know
what they we're made of but were use on reace cars not aerospace. Is
there a class of carbon bassed composites that are standard to
As far as diamond or or CBN coated cutters I'm more concerned with
machining techniques since they need 5 axis machine programming?.
understand stamping but how and why do they need hydrolic pressing?
What do they do form the rough blank to be machined when it's warm???
Cliff is right for once!!! We got a 5 axis waterjet this year for this
exact purpose. There is a definite learning curve in getting the cut
conditions just right so it does not de-laminate, but basically what
we do it what Cliff said. You get some piece that is some odd
shape....maybe 6~8 ft long ....many different widths and cut the
excess off. a few holes here & there...done.
I'm thinking they are milling with diamond cutters in pockets at high
speed 20000 with full 5 axis. But I'm not sure they use all vacuum
fixture. Hydrolic pressing might not be a close enough fit from pats
surface to top of fixture on op 2.
Listen fucktard stop putting words in my mouth and stop lying like
your retard pal, Brewer or a scumbag like Joe788 does on a constant
basis. I never said you have done it wrong for ten years or even
implied you said this. In FACT, I had no idea you machined carbon
fiber, nor do I care.
What I did say and all I said was if someone is cutting carbon fiber
they need diamond tooling, That's because anything else I've tried
didn't last. If you've got something else that works fine post it and
let the group know. Until then suggest you shut the hell up until you
have something specific of value to add.

Here is something more specific,
I program the boat components for 35 boat manufacturers. Ever heard of
They not only make a bit of aluminum but they are a huge composite
I program their US boat companies sales for all of the US.
I have seen a bit of composites material machine old boy.
Composites are manufactured in sheets, actually I have built their
composite molds as well as composite surf board molds for the previous
owner, Penske Composites. Eleven years ago I was contacted by the
President of Penske Composites and was asked to generate their first
router program for machining composite material.
We have NEVER used diamond tooling, carbide works just fine and is much
more cost effective. The greater r=the density, the more speed feed
adjustments must be adjusted.
The Penske company was in Mt Juliet TN but after being purchased by
Alcan, the operations were moved to New Jersey. I still do their cnc
programming for the boat component kits for said 35 companies.
I have seen a bit of composites material machine old boy. You are once
again barking up the entirely wrong tree.
Cliff & jonny, why not just read the list for yourself at the following
