Whether cutting, pocket milling, plunge cutting or relief works, not all tasks can be done with one and the same router bit wood. When pocket milling, for example, the finish should be a flat surface. In 3D milling, such as in relief works, it is important to avoid hard, visible transitions between the individual milling paths. The tip of the end mill, the so-called grinding, is therefore crucial for the finish of your workpiece.
A fishtail cutter has a special grinding that resembles a drill bit. This enables you to vertically plunge into multiplex or other wood.
A face cutter features a flat tip. Since it leaves an even surface finish, it is the perfect router bit wood for milling pockets and clearing pockets.
The ball nose end mill features half a ball at its tip. This makes the radius cutter ideally suited for the stepless carving of reliefs, for example.
Wood engravings not only look chic, they can also be easily customized. This way, you can use your CNC machine to create a wide variety of wooden signs, bellt plates or name signs with wood engraving in no time at all. If only the depth is to be milled, a simple router bit wood can be used. 3D lettering or 3D effects, on the other hand, can be produced perfectly with the help of engraving bits or V-routers.
A V-Groove or an engraving bit is a tapered end mill for creating 3D letterings. The special cutter is available in different point angles (30°, 45°, 60°, 90°) and produces stylish 3D effects. The V-Groove is suited for larger jobs. For more delicates projects, the engraving bit is the first choice.
When looking for the right router bit wood, there is a wide variety of different end mills to choose from. A spiral toothed router bit is especially suited for processing soft wood while a two-flute is great for milling hardwood. Upcut, downcut or the compression end mill, the choice of the appropriate router bit wood depends on your project and the cutting edge you want to achieve. We explain, what you need to pay attention to.
In woodworking, an even surface is often indispensable. If you have a planer in your workshop or at home, you can use it to level and smooth the raw wood. An alternative to dressing is face milling with a CNC machine. Just clamp a face milling cutter into the milling motor and the wood is evenly removed path by path. This way, you also get a great finish when producing inlays or working with epoxy.
Face milling cutters are available in many different diameters and shaft sizes. They feature a cutter head with knives and can be used for processing a wide range of materials such as wood, plastics and epoxy. For a particularly long tool life, the Amana face milling cutter is equipped with 4-sided solid carbide reversible blades.
