Speeds & Feeds—Sandwich Panel Cutters

Speeds and Feeds—Sandwich Panel Cutters


CoreHog™ solid carbide sandwich panel cutters were developed to allow finish cutting of composite honeycomb panels. This new design allows full depth cutting of panels at the fastest feed rates possible while minimizing issues of flagging and delaminating created by traditional cutters used in the industry. Recommended with materials such as carbon laminate with Nomex honeycomb and Kevlar honeycomb. CoreHog™ tools are extensively tested on aircraft interior panels and found to virtually eliminate manual cleanup of parts after machining, while increasing cutting rates by up to 300% over conventional cutters. Specially selected coatings have been added to prolong tool life over standard ­carbide alone.

Speeds & Feeds—Aramid Core

Speeds and Feeds—
Aramid Honeycomb Tools


  • Below listed speeds and feeds subject to variation from different treatment process, fixturing, etc.
  • If cut face of material appears to be getting too hot, increase feed rates
    or drop spindle RPM
  • If material tearing occurs at cells, decrease depth of cut and/or step over distance rather than plunging if possible when pocketing or roughing
  • 15 degree ramp angle is desirable
  • Conventional cutting is recommended for the slicer combination tools whenever possible but is not necessary if climb milling is required
  • Cut direction is not important when using CoreHog™ carbide roughing tools. Ramping into material is recommended
  • Listed speeds and feeds are to be used as a general guideline; adjustment may be necessary on a case-by-case basis
