When working with any veneer finished material in your CNC machine, you need a compression spiral end mill to make full depth cut. These bits are designed to leave clean edges on the top and bottom faces of any material. The compression bit's unique design pulls chips upward at the bottom of the stock and downward at the top face, producing chip-free surfaces that are perfect for cabinet and furniture parts. Compression cut spiral end mills are excellent for melamine, plywood, MDF and solid wood.
Small bits (1/4" diameter) can flex or break with full depth cuts. Make several shallow passes and then use a step over for a final, full-depth pass. For nested-based CNC routing in production environments, choose 1/2" diameter bits for single pass cuts and efficient machining. Proper feed and spindle speeds will ensure smooth cuts and maximum bit life.
Yonico solid carbide end mills are manufactured from the highest quality micro grain C3 solid carbide and will last for hours of use and maintain its sharpness throughout. These bits also carry a limited lifetime warranty and satisfaction guarantee.
