Glass, carbon and aramid fibers pose new challenges for a wide range of industries worldwide. Tyrolit now presents the comprehensive Tyrolit Power range for efficient machining. The leading Austrian company will be presenting its innovative tools for cutting, grinding, drilling, milling and surface finishing of the most demanding workpieces made of composite materials for the first time at JEC World 2023 in Paris.
Low weight, durability and freedom of design are properties of materials that are normally mutually exclusive – this is not the case in the composite industry. The innovative materials offer the ability to withstand high pressure and at the same time support the trend towards lightweight construction. Understandably, the complex materials present numerous industries with new challenges in production. Tyrolit is the partner for solving new types of problems and designing innovative production processes together with our partners.
Thanks to decades of experience in the manufacturing of grinding tools and numerous collaborations with renowned machine manufacturers worldwide, Tyrolit is able to provide its customers with economical and sustainable solutions for the processing of composite materials. Tyrolit has been offering high-quality solutions for the surface treatment of composites since 2017, and this portfolio is now being complemented by tools for all applications.
Machining of composites with Tyrolit Power
The new Tyrolit Power range is specifically designed for these difficult-to-machine materials and has been extensively tested on them, resulting in highly efficient machining processes and guaranteeing an unparalleled tool lifetime. The portfolio includes products for cutting, grinding, drilling, milling and surface finishing of the most demanding workpieces with hand-held machines, semi-automatic robots and on high-tech CNC machines.
The new assortment offers solutions for every process step for the machining of composite materials and is designed to solve known problems. By using Tyrolit Power process reliability in the production is increased and homogeneous surface results are facilitated. In addition, the machines are equipped with special protective measures to improve the safety and health of users. The new tools generate less dust, minimise vibrations during machining and support ergonomic working.
Tyrolit Power products are already being used in numerous industries, for example for grinding rotor blades in the wind power industry, for matting surfaces in the aerospace industry, and also for machining lightweight components in the automotive industry.
