Suhner Industrial Products has developed a range of machining units with guards that can protect mechanical and electrical components against contamination from glass fiber dust and fibers, as well as dust from composite and 3D printed products. 

Suhner says that the machining units can be used when when drilling holes into sheet metal composites, dissimilar material stacks of resin bonded fibers or 3D printed polymer substrates. Regardless of the complexity of the workpiece or the number of operations that need to be performed, all machining units work at the same time and only the longest operation defines the total cycle time, when the units are used in multiple setups, the company said.
