Whether you’re producing complex moulding profiles, simple round-overs, cope and stick, raised panel,  tongue and groove profiles, or, if your cutterhead manufacturer has gone out of business (LRH, DeHart Tooling etc. ),  GUHDO will duplicate the inserts you need!   For the right edgebander replacement inserts, or for ones that you are having difficulty finding, simply contact us or give us a call at 800-544-8436.


Diamond and Insert Trimmers for Edgebanders


Shown here is a diamond tipped premill edgeband cutter (in the back), a carbide insert radius trim cutter on the right, and a selection of insert knives for HolzHer, Biesse and other edgebanders.

GUHDO offers a wide range of tooling for most edgebanders, to include straight and radius trimmers and their replacement inserts, snip saws, and diamond (pcd) premill cutters.  Our PCD tools are manufactured per specifications of the original OEM for all edgebander makes and models including Adwood, Biesse (Polymac/Stream), Brandt, Bussellato, Casadei, Cehisa, Fravol, HolzHer, Homag, Olympic, SCMI, Stefani, Delmac, IDM, Griggio and IMA. When it comes to the PCD (polycrystalline diamond) tooling on the trimming units, GUHDO offers a complete replacement tool program. Depending on the application the tools available are straight, bevel, radius, multi-radius and combination radius/bevel cutter heads.

PCD Premill Cutters for Edgebanding Machines

Diamond-tipped premill cutter for Biesse Edgebander.

PCD (polycrystalline diamond) premill cutters are often the “forgotten” tool on an edgebander. They may run for a year or more without needing to be sharpened and so noone thinks much about them until they get dull. More often than not, when that time comes, the customer is scrambling to find a quick replacement because without the premill heads, the machine is down. Because of the cost of diamond premill cutters, only a small percentage of edgebander owners have a backup set on the shelf! (depending on machine they can be $1000-$2200 cost per cutter)
GUHDO has a 24-48 hour guaranteed turnaround for PCD premill cutter sharpening (when pre-arranged), so we can get our customers back “up and running” without unnecessary delay. In addition, for the more popular edgebander models we have carbide insert “loaner” tools that can be used while waiting for a new diamond cutter to arrive.
Another thing to consider: many premill cutters that come with a new machine are designed as a “disposable” tool, making more than one resharpening highly unlikely. Pictured below is a PCD premill cutter for a Biesse Akron edgebander, #E3401E0136.
