Zünd is bringing to market new DLC coated router bits. The coating reduces friction and increases wear resistance, thereby delivering high quality results, better performance and cost efficiency.
The router bits are especially beneficial in applications involving aluminium, aluminium composites, wood and PVC. Thin film coatings are among the most effective ways to achieve significant improvements in performance and productivity. DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating permits greater processing speeds and cutting depths.
The number of passes can be reduced, which significantly increases routing productivity. Up to 4 mm thick aluminium composites can be processed in a single pass, at speeds of up to 11 m/36 ft per min. In many cases, a finishing pass becomes unnecessary, which further reduces production time. The new bits are optimised for use with Zünd routing spindles and available in diameters from 2 to 6 mm and routing depths up to 22 mm/.87 in. They are available with a stop ring, which makes them suitable for use with the automatic tool changer ARC.
