International Carbide Corp. (ICC, Yelm, Wash.) has introduced the Hole-O-Magic, a submicron tungsten carbide tool designed to rapidly cut clean holes in FRP materials faster than standard carbide tools and without the fraying and burring that results with standard metal-cutting tools. The device is said to eliminate frequent sharpening and other maintenance required with the use of traditional FRP cutting tools. Precision cutting abilities average between 2,000 inches and 2,500 inches (50.8m and 63.5m) of drilled material per sharpening, with cutting rates that can reach 50 inches/1.27m of cutting depth per minute at 5,000 rpm, according to the company.
