As part of its ongoing commitment to supporting the environment, Trelleborg’s (Randolph, Mass., U.S.) applied technologies operation has unveiled TC760X, new eco-friendly, dust-free tooling board.

According to the company, TC760X tooling board does not dust during machining; the board flakes instead of chips for a cleaner cut. Less dust leads to fewer machine breakdowns, resulting in improved production efficiency and greater cost savings, Trelleborg says.

In addition, the TC760X epoxy tooling board material is said to reduce the amount of airborne particles created during manufacturing in comparison to traditional epoxy tooling boards, reducing the overall environmental impact.

The product requires almost no secondary finishing or polishing before use, and requires minimal sealing. The material has a glass transition temperature (Tg) of 140°C and a low coefficient of thermal expansion for faster curing, improved machining and the ability for fast, simple direct-to-part manufacturing, the company says.
