UltraBIT Steel Rule Die Kerf Cutters (MM5D8) - Specifications
At the beginning of May 2014, our proprietary T3 flute geometry was incorporated into the design of all 2-point and 3-point kerf cutters. T3 was specifically developed to focus shearing stresses away from the tip of the cutter, significantly reducing bit breakage in systems with less than optimal TIR and backlash characteristics. As a result, bits with the T3 modifications are less sensitive to unexpected changes in wood density and composition as well as rapid changes in feed rate or cutting direction. As an added benefit, the T3 mods also serve to reduce deflection and extend bit life.
