Rods for drilling and milling tools


Machining of glass-fibre reinforced plastics, carbon-fibre reinforced carbon, fibre reinforced Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK), graphite, copper, … is difficult with existing standard milling tools because the dry-machining processing required. OxiMaTec has developed a new ceramic material, which is capable of withstanding the extremely high machining temperatures of these materials and has excellent wear resistance against the very hard fibres within these innovative light-weight materials. OxiMaTec’s ceramic innovation, even at very high temperatures has the required strength and hardness for high speed milling and excellent tool life.

OxiMaTec has tools for

  • Trimming of carbon fibre and glass fibre reinforced plastics
  • Machining of graphite
  • Machining of electrode-copper
  • Machining of titanium and titanium alloys
