New product line for Kevlar milling
Contrary to carbon fibers, which can be cropped
or broken by chipping with a particular cutter,
Kevlar and accordingly aramid fibers do require
tool geometries with an intensified shear action
because of their enormous high toughness.
The special milling geometry for Kevlar and
accordingly aramid fiber reinforced composites
of LMT Belin therefore uses the principle of
combined upcut and downcut helix similar to a
compression milling cutter.
The solid carbide end milling cutter has 2
straight flutes, which are responsible for the chip
removal and, in the same time are acting like
cutter knives, cutting the fiber into short, easily
