METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES (MMC)Precorp Engineers Cutting Tools Specifically for Metal Matrix Composites
Precorp Offers Diverse Carbide, Coated Carbide and PCD Solutions
Metal matrix composite (MMC) is being chosen for an increasing number of applications because of its tensile strength, stiffness, thermal conductivity, weight, and corrosion and wear resistance. The most common forms of MMC found in the market place today are aluminum based composites with various amounts of silicon carbide or tungsten carbide particles. A die cast material with 15% or 20% silicon carbide is being marketed as a replacement for cast iron in a number of aircraft and automotive applications. Precorp’s engineered cutting tools offer a great solution for drilling metal matrix composite.
