We often get calls asking for advise on how to cut carbon fiber tubes. We figure this would be a perfect topic for our first blog post.

Common Issues When Cutting Carbon Fiber Tubes
1 of 3: Delamination (chipping)
Delamination or chipping typically occur when cutting unidirectional composite tubing. Individual filaments or Tows tear away from the rest of the tube.
Fix: Slow down, take your time while cutting the tube. Let the material grind away at its own pace. Do not force the blade through the tube.
If you are still having issues, try using a thinner blade with finer grit.

All composites are not created equal. New materials are introduced to the market on a daily bases. We test and analyze each new material before offering it as a standard.

The smaller the item the the more precision counts. +/-0.005" tolerance on something this small can make or break the project.
