When it comes to high production or tough material machining, selecting the right tools plays a pivotal role in achieving precision, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. QIC Tools, a frontrunner in the industry, has been making significant strides with our cutting-edge PCD (Polycrystalline Diamond) tooling solutions. Among our standout offerings, the Three Flute Compression Segmented PCD Diamond Router Bit distinguishes itself through exceptional high feed rates, unparalleled durability, and a remarkable return on investment (ROI) when compared to conventional carbide-tipped alternatives.
The Three Flute Compression Segmented PCD Diamond Router Bit is our most popular and highest quality nesting tool and comes in either Denismet or Steel body. The Denismet is a tungsten alloy that allows for a more rigid tool. The tool is equipped with 3 cutting edges formed by PCD segments stacked in line of the flute. This configuration mirrors typical router tooling geometry and allows for extremely fast feed rates and excellent cutting quality.
As mentioned the 3 wing PCD bit has excellent performance. Below is a diagram of machining parameters for certain materials. In addition to this you can use the Chip Load and Feed Rate Calculator to dial in the machining parameters needed.
MDF – 18,000 RPM Feed Rate – 625-825″/min
Particle Board and Laminate – 18,000 RPM Feed Rate – 875-1175″/min
The Superiority of PCD Tooling:
Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) tooling has been revolutionizing the machining industry, and for good reason. QIC Tools, as a brand committed to quality and efficiency, has put together a program of PCD Tooling to create tools that outperform their carbide counterparts in several key aspects.
- Longevity: PCD is renowned for its exceptional hardness and wear resistance. The Three Flute Compression Segmented PCD Diamond Router Bit from QIC Tools is no exception. The diamond segments on the tool’s cutting edge ensure a prolonged lifespan, reducing the frequency of tool changes. This longevity translates to significant time and cost savings for businesses, making it a wise investment for any machining operation.
- High Feed Rates: One of the standout features of this router bit is its ability to handle high feed rates with ease. The three-flute design, coupled with the precision-engineered PCD segments, enables efficient material removal at accelerated speeds. This not only enhances productivity but also minimizes heat generation, reducing the risk of tool wear and material distortion.
- ROI and Cost Efficiency: While PCD tooling may have a higher upfront cost compared to carbide alternatives, the long-term benefits far outweigh the initial investment. The extended lifespan, reduced downtime, and increased productivity contribute to a superior return on investment. QIC Tools’ commitment to quality ensures that their PCD tools provide lasting value, making them a cost-effective choice in the long run.
