Tools for Steel Rule Diemakers

In spite of the success that lasers have had in the steel rule die-making industry, large format CNC routers continue to make gains and to expand the capabilities of die shops. One of the factors that is supporting this growth is the availability of a new generation of cutting tools.  New grades of submicrograin carbide and tuned, proprietary coatings have enabled the fabrication of innovative cutter designs that offer superior cut quality and cutting speeds that, in some applications, actually exceed that of laser cutters.

Most of our 1/8" shank tools are available with and without depth setting rings.

Kerf Cutters
Specifications

Our 5-flute UltraBIT kerf cutters are rapidly becoming the tools of choice among steel rule diemakers. Specifically tuned for high-speed cutting (100 - 140 in./min @ 40 KRPM) of maple and Baltic birch plywood, the kerf cutter produces precise, clean cuts with just the right amount of drag.  The innovative "blended helix" design provides the most effective debris removal in the industry.

Kerf Cutter 3/8" Skiving Tool

Skiving Tools
Specifications

The innovative center-cutting WhisperCut is the first skiving tool specifically tuned to cut composite and laminated counterboard substrates. The high-rake, 4-flute geometry insures thousands of inches of clean, smooth skiving at a fraction of the noise produced by conventional cutters.

3-Flute Contour Cutters / Alignment Pin drills
Specifications

These tools have a split personality. They spend most of the day cutting shapes out of plywood for cabinetry, shelving and steel-rule die boards. (Applications where splintering and fuzzing of the top, or bottom surface has to be minimized.)  The rest of the time, they are happily drilling precision registration holes in die boards and counter boards.

Channel Cutter

Channel Cutters
Specifications

One area where lasers cannot even hope to compete with large format CNC routers is the fabrication of counter boards. Used with the precision machines on the market today, 3 and 4-flute PreciseBIT channel cutters offer the cleanest cuts at the highest feed rates in the industry.



Spiral Cutters
Specifications

PreciseBIT 1/8 in. dia., 2-flute contour cutters feature a flute geometry designed to produce clean, accurate sidewalls at very high chip loads(150 - 175 in./min @ 40 KRPM) The aggressive flute geometry is also very effective at cutting ejection rubber for increased machine utilization.
