Exterior Door and Window Tooling for CNC machines


Window tooling profile for use on CNC machine mounted on an ISO30 tool holder arbor

Produce beautiful exterior (cope, stick & raise panel) doors and windows on your CNC router or machining center (Anderson, Biesse, CMS, Heian, Holzher, Homag/Weeke, Northwood, Onsrud, SCM Routech, etc.) with precision insert tooling designed to your custom or standard profile.  The process begins with you sending us a sample or cad drawing of your specific profile which we will use to design a cost effective tool based on your machine, expected runs, material type and budget.

Tool sets consists of insert cutter heads mounted to an Arbor (HSK63F, HSK63E, ISO30 or SK30). Because of weight restrictions, the cutter heads mounted to the specific arbors are typically manufactured from high strength aluminum. Tool sets are designed to accept standard inserts where possible, which keeps your tooling cost lower. Inserts can be changed quickly and the consistent profile ensures accuracy without adjustments due to the metric torx screws securing the inserts to the tool body. Depending on the material being machined, specific carbide grades are supplied to achieve optimum performance in terms of finish quality and tool life. The tool sets offer flexibility, repeatability and value. All dynamically balanced for exceptional performance. For more information, please contact us at 800-544-8436 or visit our website

Helical CNC Cutter with Reversible Insert Tips

Helical CNC Planer Cutter

Helical CNC Planer Cutter on HSK63F arbor

This helical insert cutter (Item# 4339.800.30) is ideal for trimming, jointing, rebating, hogging and copying operations on solid wood as well as composite materials. For use on all CNC machining centers, this cutter has a maximum rpm of 18,000 and it comes in 80mm diameter x 80mm cut length with a 30mm arbor and 8x2mm keyway as well as a spacer (1). (HSK or ISO/SK tool holder is sold separately). Special sizes can be manufactured based on customer needs.

The cutter body is made of a high quality, light metal alloy with hard-anodized surface and special convex ground reversible insert knives to provide an excellent surface finish. The insert tips overlap 75% of the cutting surface, thus providing an effective 3 wing design. The bottom of the cutter has 2 reversible spurs for clean corners on rebate cuts. The bottom of the cutter is recessed to accommodate the retaining screw so that the cutter cuts flush on the bottom.

  • Special advantages of this cutter include high chip removal rate and improved chip flow through the helically positioned cutting edges
  • Optimum division of cut and shear angles for high feed rates
  • Perfect finish, without leaving visible knife marks, due to the special convex ground solid carbide tips.
  • Reduced noise level through aerodynamic design
  • Great option for pre-cutting arches in window production and also very popular in stair production.
