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.
