Finish cutting

  • Cutting surfaces that do not require reworking

 

Cutting surfaces not subjected to thermal loads

  • Heat needs to be dissipated via the chips
  • No adhesion

 

Tear-free edges

  • No fractures on the trailing edge

 

Customised tooth shape and tooth number

  • Saw blade design
  • Machine equipment is important for ensuring good cutting results

 

Bombastic for plastic machining

Applications involving machining thermoplastics such as PC and PMMA are where Bombastic can be used to its full potential. Tools used for plastic machining need to meet the following challenges:

  • Plastic is extremely sensitive to heat and therefore tends to adhere to tools
  • Most individual plastic panels are extremely thin
  • The material is extremely difficult to machine and highly abrasive
