Belin Upcut Router Bits For Aluminum
The Belin Upcut Router Bits are designed specifically for use on aluminum and other non-ferrous metals. The cut length is shortened to provide maximum rigidity and avoid any damaging vibration while cutting.
Belin cutters are renowned for their quality and durability and this is our most popular choice for machining aluminum.
Geometry: Single flute, upward spiral
Material: Solid carbide
Min Cut Diameter: 1/8 inch
Max Cut Diameter: 3/8 inch
Use for: aluminum, aluminum composite and all non-ferrous metals
Belin Upcut Router Bits are designed to deliver an excellent cut finish to most types of aluminum, aluminum composites and other non-ferrous metals such as brass and copper. The upward spiral geometry ejects swarf toward the top of the cutter for easy removal of waste material with an quality extraction system. During cutting, the spiral flute tends to lift the material, especially if it is thin sheet, so a good work-holding system is important to eliminate any movement or vibration which would cause inaccuracy and poor cut quality.
For cutting thin sheet aluminum, please see our downcut range.
Depending on the grade of aluminum, optimal results may be achieved by using some lubricant while cutting. This is especially important when working with softer grades where the lubricant will reduce the tendency of chips to melt and adhere to the cutter, resulting in premature tool failure. The AXYZ Unist Mister system is an ideal accessory for automatic application of lubricant when cutting.
Belin is recognized worldwide for the quality of its cutting tools. By starting with the best-quality solid carbide and using flexible and modern machining centers, Belin manufactures accurate router bits of consistent high quality producing outstanding cutting results and providing excellent durability.
This type of tool is recommended for use on:
All types aluminum, aluminum composite and non-ferrous metals such as brass or copper
Feeds and Speeds
Typical settings for the 4mm (1114A-4) tool profile cutting aluminum sheet are:
Feed rate: Approx 1 m/min
Spindle rpm: 21,000
Max cut depth: 2mm
Use cutting lubricant
NOTE: These values should be used for guidance only. Under most conditions, they will be a reliable starting point. With experience, you may well find that they can be improved to better suit specific machining applications.
These tools are very hard and wear-resistant but they are susceptible to damage caused by careless handling. Always store tools in individual packaging to avoid damage caused by contact with other tooling. Even a very small chip in the cutting edge will cause unwanted marks on the workpiece and lead to faster tool wear.
