Coastal Enterprises Co. (Orange, CA), manufacturer of Precision Board HDU (high-density urethane) tooling board, is emphasizing updated speeds, feeds and chip load information for CNC routing of Precision Board. While Precision Board HDU does not conduct heat and is non-abrasive, optimal chip load can be achieved using settings found on Coastal’s website, ensuring that heat is carried away from the cutter, prolonging tool life. These data were generated with carbide cutters, but HSS cutters also are said to perform well due to the non-abrasive nature of Precision Board HDU. Coastal Enterprises also has the unique ability to custom bond Precision Board blocks in any configuration required. With only a rough drawing of the finished part, the company will fabricate a custom block or step tool to specification. There are samples in the Coastal booth (V51) of all 15 densities of material, both standard PBLT (<200°F) and high-temp PBHT  (<300°F) on hand.
