When it comes to machining thicker materials and when a larger diameter is acceptable, this up/down shear (compression) insert router bit is an ideal alternative to a 3/4″ solid carbide compression bit for machining double sided laminated panels, solid woods and plastics requiring a high quality, chip free finish. Initially only available with single sided inserts, this series has been completely redesigned to utilize double sided inserts providing a longer run time and cleaner cuts. With the recent design change, the cost effectiveness of this tool has increased dramatically.  Reduce your tooling inventory and tooling cost substantially while improving efficiencies with a tool that offers a constant cutting diameter, economical inserts, rigid tool body construction and excellent finish results!

6243 Series Router Bit

When purchasing tooling for CNC routers the most common choice, especially for nested operations, is solid carbide router bits. Because of the overwhelming options, particularly in small diameters, number of flutes and improved feed speeds, solid carbide is a safe and popular choice. When it comes to machining thicker materials and when a larger diameter is acceptable, we offer the 6243 Series Insert Router Bit which is a two flute compression tool with replaceable insert tips designed to create a chip free surface finish on solid wood and laminated panel products.

This up/down shear (compression) insert router bit is ideal for the rigors of machining thicker materials while providing the benefits that come with having replaceable carbide inserts. Initially only available with single sided inserts, this series has been completely redesigned to utilize double sided inserts providing a longer run time and cleaner cuts. With the recent design change, the cost effectiveness of this tool has increased dramatically.  The up/down shear design, provides an excellent alternative to a 3/4″ solid carbide compression bit for machining double sided laminated panels, solid woods and plastics requiring a high quality, chip-free finish.

The 6243 series is available in three cut capacities, 33mm, 53mm & up to 75mm! If you are using larger diameter (3/4”) solid carbide tooling, then consider our 6243 series insert bit.  Reduce your tooling inventory and tooling cost substantially while improving efficiencies with a tool that offers a constant cutting diameter, economical inserts, rigid tool body construction and excellent finish results!

Megaspeed PCD Router Bit (polycrystalline diamond) for excellent edge finish and highest feed rates

Our Megaspeed PCD bit offers a sturdy tool body with helically positioned, aggressive cutting angles that have a compression style shear effect.  This tool is bottom cutting, so can be used for rebating, jointing and panel sizing.  Tips are positioned to provide 4 edges where the laminate is being cut and 2 in the middle cutting area.  This provides better performance/wear with many of the very abrasive laminates being utilized today.  All cutting edges have polished PCD tips with large regrind areas, i.e. 4-5 resharpenings are possible with normal wear conditions.

Feed rates of up to 35meters/min  (114 ft/min) are possible on this revolutionary new design.
