CUTS CLEAN HOLES. SHREDS COMPETITION.
RobbJack tool distributor Chicago
Solid PCD-Tipped W-Point Drill, designed specifically for Carbon Fiber Composites.
This powerful, newly developed tool had all the features needed to do the job right, including:
- A solid polycrystalline diamond tip that outperforms diamond coating in materials with high plastic content, maintaining its edge longer
- A sharp outer edge that cleanly shears the material without delamination, uncut fibers or fiber pullout
- An innovative W-point geometry that supports the material as it pierces through
- Tool life 25 times longer than traditional carbide drills in CFRP applications—and can be extended even further with re-sharpening
When drilling carbon fiber–reinforced polymer (CFRP) wing spars, an aircraft manufacturer struggled with poor quality cuts and expensive scrap until switching to RobbJack’s new Solid PCD W-Point drill.
Prized for its high rigidity and strength-to-weight ratio, CFRP is notoriously difficult to machine without delamination, uncut fibers and fiber pullout. One manufacturer was going through 25 carbide drills to make one ship set of wing spars, scrapping many very expensive parts along the way. The process was intolerably costly and unstable.
Then RobbJack took on the challenge.
- The RobbJack Solid PCD-tipped W-point was the only tool that could meet the manufacture’s exacting design and performance standards, cutting over 4000 clean holes in tolerance; other tools struggled to get 160 holes.
- It completely stabilized and streamlined a previously difficult and wasteful process—secondary operations were no longer required
- Just one PCD-tipped W-point bit was sufficient to make a complete ship set of wing spars—a process that previously had gone through 25 lesser drills
The RobbJack Solid PCD-Tipped W-Point consistently achieved clean, precise cuts. Plus, freed from the hassle and time of replacing worn drills, the manufacturer achieved increased capacity & throughput.

Stop losing time and money on dust clean-up. AirPRO Dust Extracting Nut from Techniks removes virtually all dust from nested cutting operations. Simply replace your collet nut with the AirPRO. Collet and toolholder sold separately.
- Greatly reduces airborne dust and dust on the floor
- Cleaner workpiece and safer work environment
- Ese with ER32, ER40 or SYOZ25 collet chucks
Problem: dust left behind after processing.
Dust removal can become a time-consuming health and safety problem if the dust extraction on your CNC router is inadequate. The new AirPRO from Techniks removes dust from nested cutting operations so it never has a chance to accumulate. Sawdust is ventilated directly into the CNC dust collection hood by the AirPRO, leaving a cleaner cut and clean air behind.
NOTE: AirPRO must be used with on-size precision ER collets and tightened to torque specifications (above) using a tightening stand, torque wrench and proper adapter or warranty becomes invalid.
