These router bits are made with an extra-long reduced shank section for deeper reach and better chip clearance. Amana Tool®’s Modern Materials Finishing Geometry (MMFG) incorporates high shear, multi-flute and ZrN coating designed for the ultimate combination of finish and tool longevity in aerospace materials. Modern-day materials present challenges to the fabricator, using these special multi-flute edge tools featuring ZrN ceramic coating addresses these challenges with a winning geometry combination.
The simultaneous 3 axis motion with the appropriate software allows full 3D capability that provides sign and 3D model makers the ability to work with any material. The proprietary ZrN coating (applied by the physical vapor deposition coating process) provides high resistance to wear, sharper cutting edges, extended tool life and less friction & heat buildup.
Specially designed for 2D and 3D CNC profiling and carving in plastic, aluminum, & wood with machines such as “i-Carver”, CNC Shark®, ShopBot®, Datron & Carvewright™. The high-shear ball nose tips cut smooth 2D and 3D contours with reduced stepping while the proprietary ZrN coating (applied by the physical vapor deposition coating process) provides high resistance to wear, sharper cutting edges, extended tool life and less friction & heat buildup.

Benefits of Zirconium Nitride (ZrN) Coating
In a milling application, all plastics tend to behave differently so attention must be paid first and foremost to heat input as that greatly impacts surface finish and chip control. Some of Amana Tool carving tools, as you can appreciate, have a very small diameter, therefore any material chip-loads need to reflect that small size. It can however withstand RPM’s up to 60,000 RPMs. A directed air-blast to keep chips away along with cooling the tool and work piece are always welcome.
Suggested starting spindle speed might be 18,000 RPM, there needs to be some experimenting on the part of the programmer to best find an acceptable finish.
