Various insert knives

The RC-45711-M insert V-groove router bit contains already an AMA-12 indexable insert knife made of solid carbide as standard, which is generally suitable for wood, chipboard and plywood. In addition, this is a four-edged insert, whereby the machine uses the two cutting edges during machining. If these cutting edges become blunt after heavy use, the insert can be turned and used a second time.

Furthermore, the inserts HMA-12 for MDF and the coated AMA-12-DLC for solid wood are available.

This selection of different inserts made of different types of carbide allows you to carry out special applications. The precision and high quality of the inserts extend the tool life. In addition, you are more flexible concerning the materials to be machined.

In the long run, it is more cost-effective to purchase the exchangeable knives than to replace the entire V-groove router bit with a new one after a specific time.

But like many things, this is a matter of taste, as there are enough users who prefer to work with conventional engraving bits.

Safety during change

A secure locking screw system ensures maximum safety during changing, which results in regular cutting accuracy. When machining with the CNC router, you should also work with steel clamps or clamping claws to ensure the slightest possibility of material shifting or lifting during operation.

Attention! Make sure that you tighten the locking screw firmly after you have replaced the engraving insert knives. In case of replacing the insert knives, make sure to clean the tool first and remove all dust before inserting the new knife.
