Phenolic router bits allow for cutting and routing phenolic thanks to their 3 flute chipbreaker design, which reduces lateral tool stress. The bits operate with reduced noise and have greater feed rates, but can easily adapt to low or high spindle speed applications in CNC routers.
Plastic router bits by Onsrud are an industry standard in high-quality featuring outstanding tool longevity, a tendency to stay sharper, a broad selection of sizes and most importantly a superior quality of cut. Onsrud router bits easily cut a variety of machinable plastics as well as materials including wood, plywood, MDF and other wood composites. Router cutters are available in a range of shank sizes.
How to Choose a Router Bit:
1. Router bits can cut a material as thick as the length of the flute.
2. Router bits can drill a material as deep as the width of the flute, making multiple passes until the material is fully cut.
3. Bit size is the full diameter and length of the bit. This is different from the flute size, which shows the depth and thickness of the cut.
