Tufnol CNC Machined
Tufnol CNC Machined. A quality bit of machining from Sentinels Milling section. I thought it was a great example of what can be achieved, when you have the experience, CNC milling Tufnol type materials.
This particular part is destined for usage in the engineering electrical power sector.
It’s a nice piece of work which i thought was well worth sharing.

Some general information, from the ® TUFNOL website, about synthetic resin bonded fabrics for engineering applications and Machined components.
Firstly,® TUFNOL 6F45 epoxy cotton grade has a unique combination of properties, which makes it particularly useful for applications requiring extra performance. Especially relevant is the good all-round performance, good dimensional stability and outstanding machinability. While its principal features are its excellent electrical properties, .
Secondly,® Tufnol 6F45 is made with a specially modified epoxy resin. Which, importantly, gives a high insulation resistance and electric strength also exceptional resistance to surface electrical tracking. These first class electrical properties, combined with the excellent wear resistance of the finer weave cotton, provide a combination of properties not found in other grades.
Most noteworthy, grade ® Tufnol 6F45 is mechanically strong and ultimately resistant to a wide range of chemicals. Furthermore, it has low water absorption and good dimensional stability. As a result giving fine tolerances and a superb machined finish.
