Wood Milling Cutter with diamond cut design
Straight fluted wood milling cutter with three cutting edges and chip breaker
This wood milling cutter is a straight three flute cutter with chip breakers. The milling tool is made of solid carbide with a diamond-cut design, and you can use it for CNC woodworking. Our customers use the milling cutter, for example, for fine milling work in:
The perfect wood milling cutter
You can use the solid carbide wood milling cutter for milling wood and also machining foam and plastic. Due to a straight face grinding, the milling tool leaves a smooth surface after woodworking, both on the plane surface and the flanks.

Tips for using the wood milling cutter
Wood is a naturally grown raw material. Accordingly, different criteria must be taken into account when machining wood on CNC machines than when machining metal or plastic:
- Depending on the wood type, wood has very high strength and consequently a high load-bearing capacity. Depending on the project and its requirements, you can choose between softwood or hardwood. The variety of different woods also makes it so popular as a material for milling.
- Beware of knotholes: When choosing a material, choosing a wood with as few knotholes as possible is essential. (Unless they are deliberately desired.) In addition, the wood should be dry and seasoned.
- A clean CNC machine: Before starting woodworking, it is also essential to ensure that the CNC machine is clean. You should remove all excess lubricant residues and visible grease from the work surface before milling.
- Milling without liquid cooling: Basically, you can say that woodworking with a wood milling cutter takes place without liquid cooling. The reason for this is self-explanatory with wood. Any moisture introduced into the material is undesirable.
- Dust collector recommended: A dust collector system is also advantageous when working with wood materials, as it captures most of the wood dust and can therefore no longer be inhaled. Incidentally, this also saves you from having to do extensive cleaning work on the machine afterwards. If you have no dust collector system available, we recommend using a dust mask to avoid inhaling wood dust particles.
- Selecting the correct parameters: Once you made all preparations and clamped the material is securely on the machining surface, the right choice of speed and feed rate is critical.
- Wood is not a good conductor of heat: During milling, high temperatures can develop on the tool and burn marks can remain on the wood. These can be reduced by setting the cutting speed higher (increasing the feed rates).
