20mm Alternate Shear Insert Router Bit – Solid Carbide Replacement!

We are excited to introduce our new 20MM Alternate Shear Insert Router Bit (Part No. 22006). This 2-flute, 20 mm (0.787) diameter router bit is available in a 30 mm (1.180”) cutting length and an alternating shear cutting action. Though not recommended for machining double sided materials, this insert router bit is ideal for perimeter & grooving applications of raw composite (MDF & Particle Board) materials, solid woods and difficult to machine products such as Phenolic and especially solid surface (Avonite, Corian, Wilsonart, Formica & Swanstone).

The face-mounted inserts enable a large gullet area which effectively and efficiently evacuates the material chips and aids in the heat dissipation. This is particularly important when machining heat setting materials such as Phenolic and Solid Surface materials. Standard double sided inserts are utilized and depending on the material being machined,  are available in two different carbide grades.  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!

When it comes to machining thicker materials and when a larger diameter is acceptable, the series No. 22006 alternate shear insert router bit is an ideal alternative to a 3/4″ solid carbide compression bit.

UNITEC Round-Over Insert Bit

4097 Series Profile

4097 Series Profile

The Series 4097 UNITEC Round-Over Reversible Insert Bit is designed for use on portable routers and provides savings on sharpening cost and profile variation (after sharpening) of carbide-tipped router bits.  The tool features 1/4″ shank or 1/2, depending on radius required.   It provides a consistent cutting diameter for round overs and quarter round ovolo profiles.   Each tool body takes two solid carbide inserts.   Radius sizes available range from 2mm (approx 3/32″) to 10mm (just over 3/8″).

With reversible T.C. tips profiled on both sides, the UNITEC bit is designed with shear angles on both the bottom and periphery of the tool, providing excellent finish.

The Unitec design is also available as a customizable tool body that can be profiled for any special trim profile that falls with the parameters of 10mm width x 10mm depth.  The blank tool body can be adapted for use on various operations including rebates, grooving, beading, coving and beveling. The micro-grain carbide inserts provide extended tool life and are profiled double sided, which makes them very economical. Changing profiles is quick and easy.

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 provides an excellent finish result!
