Compression spiral cutting tool

Specifically designed for significantly longer tool life in high pressure laminates and fire rated panels, LMT Onsrud says the Polaris Compression uses optimized cutting geometry and wear resistant coating to minimize tool wear in all panel materials. The tool utilizes a new PVD coating designed to reduce edge wear in abrasive materials and a pre-coating conditioning process designed to guarantee maximum coating adhesion, allowing the coating to provide longer protection of the cutting edges, LMT Onsrud adds. The pre-coating process also creates a more uniform cutting edge with microscopic refinement thus increasing the tungsten carbide’s resistance to fracture and wear.
