PCD Inserts for Drilling in CFRP Used in Aircraft

Polycrystalline Diamond T-A Drill inserts from Allied Machine can withstand strong and highly abrasive materials like CFRP-titanium stacks, aluminum, titanium, copper, magnesium, fiberglass, and chipboard used in the aerospace and automotive applications.

Polycrystalline Diamond T-A Drill inserts feature a replaceable tip design, allowing users to replace only the tip of the tool when it has worn out, unlike competing products that require the entire tool to be removed and replaced. This saves costs for users in the long run by reducing the cost of replacement tools. The inserts feature the standard T-A Drill insert with PCD wafers installed at the insert’s cutting edge.

Allied Machine & Engineering Corp. (Dover, OH), a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems, highlights the availability of its Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) T-A Drill inserts designed for drilling in carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) that is used in lightweight aircraft wings and fuselages and other highly abrasive substances. These PCD inserts deliver drastically improved tool life and value over competing products.

The T-A Drill series features a replaceable tip design, allowing users to replace only the tip of the tool when it has worn out, unlike competing products that require the entire tool to be removed and replaced. This saves costs for users in the long run by reducing the cost of replacement tools. The inserts feature the standard T-A Drill insert with PCD wafers installed at the insert’s cutting edge. Developed to meet the needs of a major American aircraft manufacturer when the company began using CFRP for wings and fuselages nearly a decade ago, these inserts are industry-proven to lead the market in reliability and cutting efficiency.

These highly productive, cost-effective inserts can withstand strong and highly abrasive materials like CFRP-titanium stacks, aluminum, titanium, copper, magnesium, fiberglass, and chipboard that are frequently used in the aerospace and automotive industries. High speed steel and carbide drill inserts are unable to approach the efficacy, productivity, and overall value of these PCD inserts when drilling in such difficult materials.

Located in Dover, Allied Machine is a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems that deliver the lowest cost-per-hole in a wide range of drilling, reaming, threading, and boring applications.
