Where We Excel

Complex materials with challenging requirements, this is Sharon-Cutwell’s sweet spot. Simply put, we are experts at making precision holes in the toughest materials and applications.

Sharon-Cutwell developed Wave-Point™ Technology to solve the drilling challenges inherent to highly engineered carbon fiber composites. The study of the cutting process including hole quality, tolerances and tool life led to its innovative design, founded on a unique tool tip configuration that doesn’t simply cut carbon fiber, but rather carves the material in order to eliminate delamination. This dramatically minimizes exit burrs.

Wave-Point™ Technology—coupled with an exclusive diamond coating enables higher operating speeds and longer tool life. All of which help cut time out of manufacturing processes.
