New Start Up CNC Tooling Package

Need to tool up a new CNC machine?  

GDP|GUHDO has introduced a special priced CNC tooling starter package which provides a substantial savings on highest quality tooling.  This kit includes 8 HSK tool holders (choice of style based on collet style preferred (SYOZ, ER40 or ER32) and  corresponding 8 collets (choice of sizes).  In addition, the customer can select 14 solid carbide bits (4 downcut and 10 compression styles) and 10 drill bits based on sizes needed.  This package also includes a tool setup fixture, torque wrench with collet key and a spoil board cutter, which comes mounted on an heat shrink tool holder.  Finally, a box of replacement insert knives for the spoil board cutter are also included.

After receiving feedback from our customers regarding a desire for flexibility to get what is actually needed in a starter package, we customized this tooling package to allow the customer to choose which bits are needed.

This package is available at a special  price of $3499.00.

PCD Router Bits for Abrasive Composite Materials

Machining composite materials often represents a challenge with standard tooling.  Special cutting geometries are required to perfect the finish on very abrasive, hard to machine materials such as HDF, fire-rated MDF,  Thermoplastics, Phenolics,  fiberglass-reinforced plastic composites, cement fiber panels and other similar composite panels.   GDP | GUHDO has introduced some standard PCD tipped tooling  to machine such challenging materials, available from stock.  These router bits feature solid carbide bodies and 2 continuous PCD tipped flutes that are positioned on opposing axial shear with PCD bottom cutting to provide cleanest finish.   Very suitable for nesting applications.  Typical machining parameters for Thermoplastics are 15,000-18,000 rpm and a feed rate range between 1 – 5 meters / minute.  For other composite panels 18,000-24,000 and  6-9 meters / minute.  If too much heat is generated while cutting plastics, the rpm should be reduced to maximize tool life and performance.
