$56.00 $42.00

To be used only on CNC machines and routers with automatic feeding.

Using the highest quality sub-micrograin carbide, these bits have a special proprietary edge processing system featuring a super high polished cutting edge with a unique “mirror finish”, resulting in clean cuts, less chance for chip re-welding, a superior surface finish and a longer tool life. Right hand helix, right hand cut.

Specifically designed for a variety CNC machining applications, excellent for cutting:

  • Aluminum
  • Aluminum alloys
  • Aluminum Composite Materials (ACM)
  • Aluminum Composite Panel (ACP)*
  • ALPOLIC® Copper Composite Material (CCM)
  • Alucobond®
  • Alupanel®
  • Brass
  • Copper
  • Dibond®
  • Durabond**
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Titanium Composite Material (TCM)

Ideal for industrial applications, our spiral ‘O’ flute router bits are manufactured using innovative techniques and materials that yield superior results with each cut and help make aluminum projects less labor-intensive.

Benefits of Mirror-Finish:

  • Razor sharp cutting edge
  • Effortless chip removal
  • Helps prevent chip re-welding
  • Extends tool life
  • Exceptional cut quality

*Aluminum composite panel (ACP) is a type of ACM flat panel that consists of two thin aluminum sheets bonded to a non-aluminum core. ACPs are frequently used for building facades, external cladding, insulation and signage. **Durabond is a polyethylene core with 0.3mm colored aluminum sheet on either side, pre-finished requiring no decoration.

Warning: Never attempt to cut ferrous metals with these bits.

Inspect cut quality, adjust feed / speed accordingly.

For optimal results and extended tool life use mist lubricant system or air cooling.

Maximum RPM:35,000

The recommended feed rate for aluminum is 3 meters/min or 120 inch/min at 18,000 RPM.
