WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Wirutex, an Italian manufacturer of polycrystalline diamond (PCD) and carbide tools, will display new tooling for CNC machining applications at Wood Pro Expo Florida, co-located with the Closets Conference & Expo, June 8-10 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

Wirutex’s extensive line of CNC router bits includes tooling for nesting operations, wood and non-wood materials. The video above showcases a router bit with whole tips in PCD and body in solid tungsten carbide. Wirtuex says the tool is well suited for routing highly abrasive materials such as polyurethanes, solid surface materials and plywood at feed speeds of 3 to 10m/minute.

Wirutex also offers a wide range of chucks for machining wood including HydroGrip chucks, ThermoGrip chucks, and chucks for precision collets.

The video below highlights the use of Wirutex router bits by TopStar, a manufacturer of post-formed laminated components. The bits were run for 392 hours on an IMA CNC machining center, illustrating the potential long-life span of the tools. Wirutex manufactures boring bits for boring machines and CNC machining centers. Cutting edges are made of a variety of materials, including polycrystalline diamond, tungsten carbide and solid tungsten carbide.

Wirutex will also exhibit its Smart Pit System, an adjustable PCD-tipped pre-milling cutter and saw blades used in edgebanding applications at booth #327.

Wirutex celebrated its 40th anniversary last year. The company is exclusively represented in Florida by Odisseo LLC, which operates a warehouse and offices in Hollywood, Fla.
