New Metal Cutting Router Bits and Drill Bits
Metal cutting router bits and drill bits often present some challenges when the user wants to cut through stainless steel, and there are a variety of reasons for this that require various solutions. One of the biggest problems with metal cutting router bits is the high spindle revolution-per-minute speeds that are found on metal routers. Luckily, a leading manufacturer of metal drill bits has come up with solutions for these problems with a line of tools that are meant specifically for the routing and drilling of metal.
These new metal drill bits and router bits are capable of running at high spindle speeds, while still being able to provide a long and good tool life. These metal cutting router bits and related tools combine a unique cutting geometry and coating that allows the stainless steel materials to be routed for a variety of purposes. Whether the metal drill bits are being used for signs, exhibits or general sheet applications, one of these solid carbide tools can do the job. The metal cutting router bits and drill bit come in 1/8, 3/16, 1/4 and 3/8 inch diameters, which can be run at spindle RPM speeds that range from 6,000 to 18,000.
The company that has developed these specialized metal drill bits and routers, Onsrud Cutter, is located in Libertyville, Illinois. They not only produce solid carbide metal cutting router bits and drill bits; they also manufacture high-speed steel, carbide tip, solid carbide and diamond coated router tooling for wood, plastic composite and metal materials of all shapes and sizes. Onsrud Cutter manufactured the first router bits in 1920, revolutionizing the world of routing and drilling from that day forth. It makes sense that they should create these metal cutting router bits that are also revolutionizing the world of stainless steel, which is one of today’s most commonly used materials.
