Phenolic Counter Cutters

1. Chamfering / Cutout Tools - 2 flute, 1/8 in. (3.18 mm) shank, spiral "V" point
These tools were designed with the assistance of numerous steel rule die shops that needed low-cost, high-speed tools for chamfering counter board channels and for depaneling the finished counters.
  • Cuts Micarta® at 100 - 120 in./min. @ 40,000 RPM
  • Cutting edge geometry virtually top edge lifting and fraying.
  • True spiral geometry insures efficient debris removal
  • 45°& 60° tips optimized for chamfering and through-cutting glass-phenolic and paper-phenolic counter board substrates

2. Skiving Tools - 4 flute, 3/8 in. (9.53 mm) shank
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.
  • 110 in./min. @ 22.5 KRPM (Micarta®)
  • High flute volume supports high feed rates / chip loads
  • Innovative split-flute, end cutting geometry significantly reduces noise
  • Straight flute geometry eliminates lifting and gouging of the substrate

3. Channel Cutters - 3 flute, 1/8" (3.18 mm) shank, fish tail point
Used with precision counter cutter machines that are on the market today, ultra high performance (UHP) channel cutters offer the cleanest cuts at the highest feed rates in the industry.

  • Length: 1.5" +/- 0.010"
  • Diameter: nominal +0.0000", -0.0010"
  • Shank diameter: -0.1250" (3.18mm) +0.00, -0.0002"
  • Runout (TIR): +/- 0.0002"
  • Max depth of cut: 0.0125" +/- 0.005"
  • Anticipated life: min. 10,000 linear inches (composite, Micarta®)
  • Material: solid submicrograin carbide
  • Operating RPM: CNC certified operation 20k PRM to 100k RPM
  • Feeds/speeds: min. 175-200 in/min @ 50 KRPM (Micarta®)
