In a high-speed, fully-automated production environment, it is important to use strong reliable chucks for CNC to be fixed into CNC machines and hold router cutters to work perfectly, efficiently and in the safest method. Machined from special super-strength steel, CMT & OMAS tools for CNC machines easily meet the demands of production routing applications. CMT offers a wide variety of industrial cutters, collets, adaptors and bushings for the majority of your production woodworking needs.
Some common types of router bits used in woodworking CNC routers include:
-Straight Bits: These are the most common type of router bits and are used for making straight cuts in the wood.
-Spiral Upcut Bits: These bits are used for creating deeper cuts in the wood, and are designed to remove chips and debris from the cutting area as they cut.
-Spiral Downcut Bits: These bits are used for making shallow cuts in the wood, and are designed to produce a smooth finish on the surface of the wood.
-Ball Nose Bits: These bits are used for creating curved and intricate designs in the wood, and are designed to produce a smooth and even surface.
-V-Groove Bits: These bits are used for making V-shaped grooves in the wood, and are often used for creating decorative patterns and designs.
When working with CNC routers, it is important to choose the right router bits for the job and to ensure that they are properly secured in the machine. Additionally, it is important to follow proper safety protocols and to have a good understanding of the machine and its capabilities before beginning any woodworking projects.
