Ralph Hufschmied of Hufschmied Technology Centre and Consulting
T-REX milling cutter 2F+2
T-REX tools have been developed for the machining of CFRP structural components and the special requirements of the automotive and aerospace industries. With its cutting-edge variable geometry, the T-REX combines the advantages of a milling cutter geometry with the delamination-free trim quality of a compression tool. This results in high abrasion resistance for long tool life. HUFSCHMIED has applied for a patent for this new development. Other tooth geometries (narrow, medium or coarse toothing) are available.
Milling of edge trim pockets and cut-outs for CFRP with thermosetting resins. Another T-REX geometry is available for thermoplastic matrix systems.
• Roughing and finishing with one tool
• Very long tool life
• Clean surfaces
• Prevents fiber tearing
• Delamination-free machining
• High dimensional variety
Shadowdrill – AD401
Faster than its shadow. A special grinding ensures optimized fast chip removal. In combination with high-performance materials and a complex cutting edge geometry, the Shadowdrill can also meet extreme requirements of particularly demanding machining processes in aluminum.
• Burr-free machining, both at entry and exit
• Excellent surface quality
• High feed rate
Wolverine HC403BD and Bonecrusher HC405BD
Efficiency and speed combined – thanks to a unique cutting-edge geometry as a high-volume roughing cutter. Optimum machining of aluminum requires the ideal tool. Developed in Hufschmied’s own engineering center, the Wolverine HC403BD is the perfect tool for removing high chip volumes and for trochoidal machining.
• Perfect chip flow
• Solid design
• Short cutting edges
• Extreme feed rates possible
"With tools from Hufschmied, we were able to significantly improve the machining process when machining reinforced CFRP floor beams for the Airbus A350. In terms of unconditional delamination avoidance, highly predictable tool behavior and smoother machining, Hufschmied tools are the first choice for us in this particular process."
"Anyone who has demanding machining tasks cannot avoid checking the tool manufacturers' specifications on parts themselves. The tools from Hufschmied actually perform better than the manufacturer promises. In our tests, the quality of the tools and the feed rates that are possible with them really impressed."
"Hufschmied supports Kunzmann in putting together processes for trial machining, customer demonstrations and trade show demos. We got an excellent first impression of how Hufschmied optimizes tools and processes. This will definitely not be the last collaboration."
"I knew Hufschmied from the field of plastic machining and knew that this tool manufacturer achieves excellent results with difficult materials. It's remarkable the time savings and quality gains that can be achieved with tools optimized for a specific material and cutting task."
"We had a very good, productive cooperation with Hufschmied Zerspanungssysteme GmbH. New projects were realized in a targeted manner. The professional support and the tools that were individually adapted to the respective projects were the perfect basis for this successful work."
"The practical test made it clear: Thanks to the more efficient machining, the Hufschmied tools were worthwhile for us due to the additional machine capacity and significantly longer tool life. By using the BlockBuster, we were quickly able to achieve a huge time saving of 50 percent on average."
"The HSC machining of plastics introduced by Hufschmied is revolutionary: because, as we have seen, it minimizes the heat input from machining, no additional stresses are generated in the component. A gain in precision and time."
"We rely completely on tools from Hufschmied and are very satisfied with the quality and with the advice on processes. We have now determined the optimal tools and cutting parameters for each material. In all machining steps, we have the highest process reliability."
"In fully automated Industry 4.0 processes, values such as tool precision are becoming increasingly important. The tools from Hufschmied have impressed us with the highest precision, both in plastic machining and in instrument panel machining as well as aluminum extruded profile machining."
