Geiss LLC (Durham, Conn.) has developed a one-piece sonotrode and cutter for cutting and shaping a broad range of honeycomb core materials including paper, Nomex, aluminum and stainless steel. This optional feature for integration into Geiss CNC machines can include a range of knife blades and rotating disks. Stored in a tool-changing magazine and automatically exchanged during the programmed machining sequence, tool changeover is quick and easy within a single part program. Ultrasonic core-cutting tools reportedly achieve extreme accuracy without producing dust or waste material.

Geiss has also designed a dust extraction system for use with conventional routing methods. Applicable to a broad range of materials, this system is especially beneficial with carbon and glass fiber reinforced materials, allowing effective dust collection and control because it is integrated at the milling spindle where the dust is produced.
