The Process Of Composite Routing


Composite routing can be described as the process of removing cylindrical shapes in composite materials, which are any substances that are made of fibers held together with some type of resin. Composite routers are often used for materials composed of graphite, fiberglass and aramid. Specialized tools such as carbon graphite router bits are necessary to cut through these unique materials.

Carbon graphite router bits are used for graphite composite parts, which is actually a type of carbon fiber that has been processed to increase its strength. Carbon and graphite are terms that are actually synonymous with one another, but carbon graphite router bits are used in either case. Composite routers can be used for many different types of composite fiber materials, whether they are made of small pieces, mesh, scrim, unified fibers, woven clothes, or a combination of those. Composite routing differs from other types of routing because the materials are so much different from wood, metal or other solids. The composite parts may have many thin layers of the fibrous materials, which are different to cut through from something that is made of one solid material.
