Global Tooling Company Enters UK Composites Market

Dimar Tooling is entering the UK composites market by launching an exciting range of products specifically designed for composite materials.

Dimar says the experience it has gained, especially in dealing with composite wood materials, has enabled them to develop proprietary grades of carbide, along with unique geometry in tooling solutions, to combat similar challenges in the composite market. Composite materials, being very abrasive, are difficult to machine and material delamination is one of the difficult areas to overcome; cutting material efficiently and effectively with little stress is therefore very important.

According to Dimar, its entry into the composites market came about after composite engineers asked it to help overcome these delamination problems along with short life-time on existing tools. Using their skills and experience in working with wood composites, which creates similar problems when cutting, engineers at Dimar set about developing proprietary grades of tungsten carbide which, combined with the unique geometry, resulted in a new range of tools which can avoid delamination and can give up to eight times the life against other carbide tools.

David Kerr, Dimar Tooling’s Group VP, said, “I am delighted that Dimar has entered the UK composites market. We’ve been a global leader in tooling solutions for the industrial woodworking industry for over 50 years and our vast experience in the challenges of cutting wood composite materials, has allowed us to gain a real competitive advantage. I’m confident that the quality of our products mean it won’t be too long before we’re leading the way in composite tools as well. Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want a product that can improve performance, production line efficiency and costs!” Dimar has already launched its new composite cutting tools in the US and is now working closely with aerospace partners, including contractors for a leading aerospace company, where their burr tools have given measurable improved performance, along with substantial cost savings.
