PCD Diamond Router Bit Designs

These PCD diamond router bits were recently featured in an article about Tooling Technology for Woodworking on woodworkingnetwork.com as one of the greatest ways to reduce tooling costs in the right situation. PCD tools are great for situations where the material being cut is consistent lacking metals or impurities that might chip the bit.

68116811- Our disposable style single flute diamond compression bit (Z1=1) is designed to be used in slower feed rate applications (to 18ft/min) with a cut length of 1″. While this tool is considered a disposable bit it can be sharpened one time greatly increasing the cost savings over solid carbide when comparing the costs.

6812 –  Our 2-flute diamond bit features a solid carbide tool body and a short upcut, suitable for nesting cuts. The cutting edges shear toward the center of the material in an up/down angle, to provide a very clean cut on laminated materials. This bit can be sharpened approximately 4 times when used under normal wear conditions and can be run with a feed rate of up to 650ipm.

6818 – Our 3-flute diamond bit features a solid carbide tool body and a short upcut and like our 2 flute it’s suitable for nesting cuts.  The cutting edges shear toward the center of the material in an up/down angle, to provide a very clean cut on laminated materials. This bit can be sharpened approximately 4 times when used under normal wear conditions and can be run with a feed rate of up to 900ipm. The biggest difference between the 2-flute and 3-flute is the feed rate which can be used.
