Router Bits

Router cutters in PCD, HW and HWM

Wirutex designs and manufactures a wide range of router cutters for CNC machining centres with different types of cutting edges:

  • Polycrystalline diamond (PCD) 
  • With interchangeable HM knives
  • Tungsten carbide, solid tungsten carbide (HW- HWM)

Router bits are used on CNC machining centres to carry out different machining operations, such as

  • Contouring
  • Sizing
  • Boring
  • Finger joints and rebating
  • Grooving
  • Nesting
  • Planing

The cutting geometries of the Wirutex router bits guarantee finishes of the highest quality, as well as ensuring excellent durability of the cutting edge on a variety of materials such as:

  • Solid wood and its derivatives
  • MDF panels
  • Melamine materials
  • Plywood materials
  • Coated plywood materials
  • Phenolic materials
  • Corian
  • Stratified materials

Router cutters in PCD

Router bits made from PCD consist of a body in tungsten carbide or solid tungsten carbide, onto which small PCD tips are braze-weldedTheir long cutting life makes them particularly suitable for repeated operations on chipboard, MDF, melamine, plywood and coated plywood, HPL and CORIAN, guaranteeing high quality results throughout the whole production cycle.

Router cutters made from tungsten carbide (HW) or solid tungsten carbide (HWM)

Router bits in tungsten carbide or solid tungsten carbide, the cutting edge is made of the same material as the body of the cutter.  Cutters in HM or HWM with cutting edges

  • Positive helical cutting edges
  • Negative helical cutting edges
  • Positive helical cutting edges with chipbreaker
  • Negative helical cutting edges with chipbreaker
  • With straight cutting edges

They are recommended for machining all wood types requiring greater chip discharge. They are most commonly used in machining operations where the type of material processed in a single day changes frequently, and where a high quality finish is not required, because the cutting edge of tungsten carbide tools begins to deteriorate from the very first cutting phases.
