Cutting Tools and Grinders

Tool system for grinding woodworking blades

A tooling system from ANCA, which can be used on FX5 and FX7 grinding machines, allows users to change between grinding woodworking profile blades and cylindrical (shank) tools. The tooling system comes as a package that includes a workholding adaptor (blade chuck) to hold flat profile blades and a blade gripper head fitted to the robot loader to load woodworking blades or cylindrical tools without any mechanical changes. Optional pallets are available for both blades and shank tools. The blade chuck works with a pull stud clamping mechanism. Blade profiles as small as 20 x 20 mm, and as large as 80 x 30 mm is possible.

Automated profile grinder

The Utma P20 CNC profile grinder is an automated profile grinder from Colonial Saw that grinds profile tools, including Powerlock HSK. It grinds moulder knives, brazed cutterheads, inserts, and router bits direct from cad drawings without requiring a template. The system can grind a maximum tool length of 305mm (12”), and a maximum tool diameter of 300mm (11.8”) or an optional 14” model. 

Insert router bits for MDF doors

Vortex Tool offers a wide variety of insert router bits for MDF door production. By using tools in combination, the company says users can create solid doors with the appearance of five-piece construction. A complete selection of outside edges, inside treatments and raised panel profiles are in stock.

Diamond tooling

Wood-Cutters Tooling now offers a wide range of diamond cutting tools for wood, plastics, and metal. The company says the benefits of diamond tooling continue to positively impact abrasive industrial cutting applications, including reduced machine downtime, high resistance to wear resulting in far longer run time, excellent quality of finish and lower cost per cut. Applications include routing, sawing, cutting, profiling, in addition to polishing in acrylics and hard plastics.

Chip & dust extraction nut

Available from Wood-Cutters Tooling, the Tornado dust & chip extraction nut from Sistemi Klein helps remove both fine dust and rough material during nesting and conventional CNC routing operations. The company says users routing with upshear or upcut-style bits have experienced a 90% improvement in dust removal. The Tornado is available for use with ER25 – ER32 – ER40 – EOC25 style collet holders.

Saw safety system

Felder Group's new PCS (Preventative Contact System) is a saw safety technology for industrial saws to keep operators safe. Movement detected within a certain threshold triggers a safety mechanism that quickly lowers the sawblade below the saw table before the blade touches any flesh.

Wood-Cutters Tooling offers a full range of drilling and routing tools for most any CNC machining center or router. Products include dowel drills, thru-hole drills, boring bits, spiral router bits, and made-to-order profile router tools.
