We achieve this by using high-quality European carbide as a starting point. Our CNC grinding machines are fitted with the latest version of 3D design modelling software which is complemented by our experienced design staff and machine operators in our Melbourne facility. The result is a CNC Oflute tool that has a sharper, smoother cutting edge which delivers all the tool benefits that make SpiralX CNC Oflute router bits a leader in CNC processing of MDF, chipboard and plyboard sheets in nesting operations.

The smooth cutting edge of SpiralX Oflute tools is achieved by using the best grinding wheels we could find, meaning that the quality of the sharpness is consistent throughout the edge contour on every tool. The flute position is measured before grinding of the outside diameter clearance angle to ensure the edge is kept parallel to the tool body centre line so the tool cuts evenly during operation. The result of adding this process to all of our tool programs is a tool that distributes the cutting load equally, reducing vibration and producing a chatter-free surface on cut parts, reducing the need for many hours of hand finishing. The result is clear, SpiralX Oflute tools offer superior performance in operation when compared to many other established brands in Australia and around the world.

The open flute design in both up and down cut types allows for the chips and heat generated by the cutting process to escape the cutting zone. This keeps the temperature of the tool lower and helps to retain the tool edge sharpness for an extended time during the cutting process. This fact also allows for SpiralX Oflute tools to work under more load than other tools. Operating at a higher feed rate also allows for cooling in the cutting zone, in turn, delivering lower production times for each operation.

An added benefit in keeping the edge sharper for longer is that it reduces the lateral load on the tool which means that if you have had a problem with tool breakage in the past, SpiralX CNC Oflute spiral tools for CNC nesting machines could be the answer to this problem you have been seeking.

At SpiralX we pride ourselves on producing the highest quality tools. We, along with our customers, believe that our range of Oflute tools is an investment in machine optimization. This is often overlooked but has a material effect on increasing machine ROI, machine productivity and reducing waste. The result of these efforts is that the customer enjoys running a more profitable business.  Explore our ranges of Oflute Spirals for Plastic and MDF, Chipboard and Plyboard. - Less
