Solid carbide plastic milling cutter
Top results in plastics machining
You will achieve top results when machining plastics with this milling cutter. Materials such as POM, PVC and acrylic glass are ideal for milling with this tool. Due to the sharp cutting edges of the milling cutter, you can achieve a perfect surface finish.
Plastic milling cutter with Down-Cut design
During machining with a plastic milling cutter with a Down-Cut design, the bit pushes the chips downwards. That means there is no lifting on thin boards and no fraying on wood with a top layer. In contrast, a cutter with Up-Cut pushes the chips upwards, away from the workpiece.
Versatile plastic milling cutter
Furthermore, the plastic milling cutter is also suitable for milling softer aluminium, foams and also wood.
Caution: Like all single-edged tools, this plastic milling cutter is unbalanced. Therefore, with large diameters of the cutter, you must clarify before whether the milling spindle can absorb the resulting forces.

Down-cut cutter for plastic
Advantage of down-cut tools
Single flute cutters have the advantage that they have a large flute. The chips can be conveyed upwards past the material surface along this open area. That prevents the bit from clogging. In addition, this protects the plastic milling cutter and extends its service life.
Mode of operation of a milling cutter with Down-Cut
In contrast, here, you can see a plastic milling cutter with a Down-Cut. That presses the chips against the table. In this case, the chips are conveyed downwards or backwards via the groove. These cutters are better suited for shallower milling depths.
Single flute cutters for easier plunging
Single flute cutters have only one cutting edge. You can say that the fewer cutting edges an end mill has, the easier it dips into the surface of the workpiece.
Chip jamming is rarer
The flute is more prominent here. Since a single flute cutter has a larger open area, the risk of chip jamming is lower here. In contrast, milling cutters with several cutting edges have a minor chip flute. That is because the open area decreases with the number of cutting edges.
Suitable materials for the plastic milling cutter
The single-edged plastic milling cutter properties are particularly well suited for milling work on materials such as plastics, PVC, Plexiglas and acrylic glass, for example. However, you can also use it in soft aluminium, foam or wood.
