RobbJack (Lincoln, CA, US) will feature its line of composites cutting tools, including polycrystalline diamond (PCD) drills and threaded shanks. The PCD drills feature a solid diamond tip whose geometry is said to shear better than a typical flat-plane drill. PCD drills can be re-sharpened, exhibit long tool life and help minimize delamination and fiber pullout. The W-Point PCD drill is especially well suited for working with more problematic composites. RobbJack’s new threaded shank tools are created from a single piece of solid carbide. The one-piece design reportedly eliminates runout and performance problems associated with brazed designs, allowing the company to diamond-coat the tools for composite applications.
