Milling and Drilling of Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (CFRP)

 


The ever increasing need for light weight components explains the increasing industrial interest in machining of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer based materials (CRP). In particular, the automotive, aerospace and energy sectors are relevant industrial environments in this respect. The machining of CRP materials is challenging with respect to the obtainable part quality and tool wear. Within the EUREKA project, the WZL cooperates closely with selected partners from the industry in order to find application oriented solutions for suitable tools, coating systems and lubrication strategies for drilling and milling operations of CRP based materials.
