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.

Advantages of our “Customize it” Insert Tooling Program for CNC Machines

DSC_1036Advantages of our “Customize-it” system include:

  • No backer plates!  Tool body becomes a dedicated cutter and supports the insert knife, thus improving tool precision!
  • Constant cutting diameter with no re-adjustment do to dimension changes in the tooling
  • Manufactured in strict accordance with European Safety Standards
  • All tool bodies are precision balanced to G2.5 specifications
  • Cost-effective!

  • Inserts can be sharpened (face-ground)
  • Special carbide grades available depending on application
  • Cost sometimes less than the cost of a carbide-tipped equivalent tool

DSC_0545

  • Excellent tool life!
  • No lengthy lead time!

Cutters

The rating of cutters not only depends on superficial quality characteristics but also on the suitable design for the cutter which is very decisive for the respective application. Tools that are economically priced at first sight, can be rather expensive in the application, as they often don’t provide the expected machining quality or they are too detailed or inaccurate in handling.

  1. Round shape tooling reduces the free running noise.  
  2. Balance-borings are visible quality characteristics
  3. Sharp edges produce a finish-surface without grinding
  4. With the correct coating, the performance time can be at least doubled
  5. The thickness of the cutting edge considerably specifies the number of re-grindings.

DSC_0141

Always pay attention to form, shape and edge of the cutting tool. Through the use of round shape tools, one can reduce the noise level. Selecting the proper cutting material, and/or coating material will almost always lead to an economically improved tool.
