Compression routers

March 01, 2015

AMAMCO Tool offers compression routers for cutting aerospace composites and other challenging materials. The routers have advanced geometries to enable compression cutting and eliminate delamination, according to the company. A CVD diamond is grown onto the carbide substrate to create a hard, long-lasting cutting surface. In a distance-cut test, the tool reportedly outperformed the nearest competitor by 55 percent.
