CNC Shop Upcut Router Bits are designed to deliver an excellent cut finish to most types of rigid plastic materials such as acrylic, polycarbonate, PVC, nylon, etc. They are also very effective for use on woods and foams.
Cut Diameter: 3/16"
Cut Length: 5/8"
Overall Length: 2"
Flute Type: Upcut
The upward spiral geometry ejects swarf and dust toward the top of the cutter, making waste-material removal easy with a quality extraction system. During cutting, the spiral flute tends to lift the material, so a good work-holding system is important to eliminate any movement or vibration which can cause inaccuracy and poor cut quality.
This type of tool is recommended for use on:
All types of rigid plastic materials such as acrylic, ABS, PVC, polycarbonate, acetal.
When used in a suitable machine and with the right cutting parameters this tool can produce a smooth, near-polished finish on most types of cast acrylic sheet.
